Gitlab CI for dummies
05-26, 18:45–19:15 (UTC), Presentation Room

An overview of Gitlab CI and a number of different ways it can be used for building and testing layers in Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded

While the Yocto Project has the autobuilder, individual layers do not have access to this. With Gitlab CI, corporations and individual developers have the ability to have something similar. In this session, we will go into detail about the individual parts of a Gitlab CI configuration, how some users are using it, and how an individual might set it up and run it for their own layer.
