GitLab began as just another Git repository system, but CI pipelines were introduced after about a year and in the 6 years since GitLab CI has continuously improved to include CD and Security and is now the highest-rated CI/CD tool by Forrester.
Joining us will be Steve Grossman to describe the architecture of the GitLab CI/CD system and the basic parts of a pipeline definition including a sample pipeline. The majority of the functionality discussed is available to everyone in the open source self-hosted GitLab product or the free tier of gitlab.com.
