Guest Article: Building on Gitlab CI


This article written by Pierre de La Morinerie, talks about a new system used for building web-app. Instead of building web-app using Jenkins, companies can now use a robust and proven solution—which polls their repositories every minute, and is built with the appropriate integration and production branches.
