What is CI?

Continuous Integration (abbr. CI or CI/CD) is a tool that automates routine tasks such as running tests, code quality or deployment. It allows faster adoption of changes to master and quicker deployment. The compelling advantage of Gitlab CI is its Docker support; you can easily combine Docker images or run tests in containers.

Course Description

This course is ran in the form of a one day hands-on workshop where you will learn the importance of CI, the different versions of Gitlab CI and practice writing CI script for a sample project. The outcome will be a script for a simple project containing application build jobs, from tests to deployment.

The course is also useful for DevOps who want to simplify their routine tasks with deployment automatisation.

Lektor: Ondrej Sika

A little bit of background about myself, I am a software engineer at Slush Pool and DevOps consultant, architect & lecturer. The Gitlab CI course is the second most popular training after Docker; the two are closely related. I lead all the courses myself. I am experienced in Gitlab CI from multiple projects and businesses. Almost all projects that I am working on are using Gitlab CI. Gitlab CI is making my work simpler and quicker - I don't have to worry about routine tasks such as deployment or application building, and I can spend time on tasks that generate profit.

Get in touch if you have any questions - happy hearing from you!



I consulted with Ondrej topics including Blockchain, GIT and development standards. I appreciate Ondrej's knowledge and experience in these areas. Ondrej is open minded person and discussions with him I found very fruitful.

Ondrej came to help us with deployment Docker and Gitlab CI. Ondrej is very good in his field and I can just reccomend him. We did lot of thing in very short time, and we would'n be able to do it without him. I recommend him.
