Attendees will learn how CI/CD pipelines can increase IT velocity (from Dev to Ops), increase code quality and lower risk; and will learn how to implement CI/CD pipelines in two popular tools, Jenkins and GitLab CI.
Infrastructure engineers, system administrators, or DevOps engineers familiar with Git who have to set up or support CI/CD pipelines.
Familiarity with CI/CD concepts; ability to implement CI/CD pipelines using popular tools such as Jenkins and GitLab CI.
- Introduction and orientation
- Origin of Continuous Integration (CI) at ThoughtWorks
- Widespread adoption; how CI relates to DevOps
- Basic tasks: Build, Test, Deploy
- Overview and Architecture
- Definition of Key Terms
- Building, Testing and Deploying (with hands-on lab)
- Checking Pipeline status with Jenkins Blue Ocean UI
- GitLab CI
- Architecture: GitLab, GitLab CI Multi Runner, ephemeral test environments
- Definitions: pipeline, stage, job, build, runner, environment, artifact, cache
- Setting up runners: adding job runners; host instance types (shell, Docker, ssh, etc.); runner/job tags
- Building, Testing, and Deploying (with hands-on lab)
- Troubleshooting: build logs; enabling verbose builds; increasing "loglevel"; interactive access to containers
