Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)

CI is the practice of integrating code into a repository and building/testing each change automatically, as early as possible. There are several tools in the market to facilitate Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) practices, such as GitLab and Jenkins.

GitLab included by default CI functionalities[1] since 22/09/2015 in GitLab 8.0[2] and CD functionalities since 2016. GitLab CI/CD pipelines are configured using a YAML file called .gitlab-ci.yml

Other CI tools include: Azure DevOps, Bamboo, CircleCI, CloudBees, DevOps/Jenkins X, Gitlab, GitHub, Shippable, JetBrains TeamCity and Travis.
