Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are the Holy Grail for software development teams: no matter who pushes the feature, the same tests are run, the same processes are followed, and nothing gets released without satisfying well-defined quality standards.

Unfortunately, setting up that initial CI/CD workflow can be a bit daunting for teams that don’t have an experienced DevOps engineer.

Fear not, my dear developers! This talk breaks down the basic concepts of continuous integration, continuous delivery, and how to integrate them into your team’s workflow. Whether you’re working on a small side project or your next big idea, CI and CD can make the journey better.

For this talk, we’ll be using GitLab’s (free) CI/CD pipelines, but the principles translate well to any major CI/CD platform!

A bit short, don’t be afraid of live demos!

This was a talk I was very much looking forward to as CI/CD is a topic I’m to improve upon and Steve was very informative and well presented on the different variations of how jobs can be handled.

I enjoyed this talk. Steve gave a great overview of the difference between Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment and made the pipeline process seem less scary than I imagined it would be.
