Automatic build and deploy with OpenShift and GitLab CI

ADMIN Network & Security Magazine

Releasing software is usually a time-consuming and cumbersome process for developers. OpenShift, an open source container application platform, paired with the GitLab continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) tool can help developers be more productive by improving software release cycles.

OpenShift provides a self-service platform that allows you to create, modify, and deploy applications on demand, thus enabling faster development and release life cycles. With these tools, developers can be more focused on application development than on the operational details.

’With this article, states Alexandre, I aim to demonstrate how to set up a CI/CD process quickly on OpenShift and how to integrate it into developer workflows. In the end, you will have all the information you need in hand to create an application that is built and deployed automatically at each commit.’
