This meetup is sponsored by GitLab. We will provide plenty of Impellizzeri's delicious pizza, breadsticks and soft drinks.

GitLab is a single application for the entire DevOps lifecycle. At GitLab, we are building a platform for continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD). We are heavy believers in continuous integration. In this talk I will explore how we leverage continuous integration at GitLab to move quickly.

- How do we define Continuous Integration?
- Why use continuous integration?
- How do we run our pipelines?
- What do our pipelines do?

I'll answer these questions and more at Derby DevOps meetup. Since our work is open source, I'll provide real life examples of how we practice small iterations, continuous testing, and pipeline configurations. I look forward to sharing!
