When it comes to DevOps, the phrase that comes to mind is CI/CD pipeline. Let's have a look at the definition of a CI/CD pipeline:
Systems provide automation of the software build and validation process driven in a continuous way by running a configured sequence of operations every time a software change is checked into the source code management repository. These are closely associated with agile development practices and closely related to the emerging DevOps toolsets. – Gartner.com
In the DevOps world, we have a plethora of toolsets that can help and leverage CI/CD capabilities.
This blog gives direction to up and running your CI/CD pipeline running on the Kubernetes cluster by the GitLab CI/CD pipeline.
