This class explains what Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines are and what value they bring to the software development lifecycle. It also outlines the architecture behind GitLab's CI/CD pipelines and explains how to set up basic CI/CD pipelines in your own projects. Finally, it touches on a handful of specific CI/CD pipeline use cases, including pushing your app to a Docker Container registry and using one of GitLab's security scanners.

GitLab CI/CD Training covers some features that are available in all three GitLab pricing tiers (Free, Premium, and Ultimate), some features that are only available in Premium and Ultimate, and a small number of features that are only available in Ultimate.
