Jenkins ⇒ GitLab Migration Workshop

Date: July 21, 2021
Time: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM PST / 11:30 AM- 2:00 PM EST

The‌ ‌world‌ ‌of‌ ‌software‌ ‌development‌ ‌and‌ ‌CI/CD‌ ‌is‌ ‌much‌ ‌different‌ ‌than‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌over‌ ‌15‌ ‌years‌ ‌ago‌ ‌when‌ ‌Jenkins‌ ‌was‌ ‌originally‌ ‌created.‌ ‌I’d‌ ‌bet‌ ‌that‌ ‌some‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌freestyle‌ ‌jobs‌ ‌and‌ ‌pipelines‌ ‌in‌ ‌Jenkins‌ ‌would‌ ‌agree‌ ‌if‌ ‌they‌ ‌could‌ ‌speak.‌

That‌ ‌means‌ ‌there’s‌ ‌no‌ ‌better‌ ‌time‌ ‌than‌ ‌now‌ ‌to‌ ‌start‌ ‌modernizing‌ ‌and‌ ‌improving‌ ‌your‌ ‌workflow‌ ‌with‌ ‌GitLab.‌ ‌Regardless‌ ‌of‌ ‌where‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌on‌ ‌your‌ ‌journey‌ ‌or‌ ‌how‌ ‌complex‌ ‌your‌ ‌pipelines‌ ‌may‌ ‌be,‌ ‌start‌ ‌taking‌ ‌steps‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌right‌ ‌direction‌ ‌by‌ ‌learning‌ ‌how‌ ‌to‌ ‌migrate‌ ‌your‌ ‌pipelines‌ ‌over‌ ‌with‌ ‌ lab‌ ‌exercises,‌ ‌best‌ ‌practices,‌ ‌tips,‌ ‌and‌ ‌tricks‌ ‌from‌ ‌subject‌ ‌matter‌ ‌experts.

While‌ ‌there’s‌ ‌no‌ ‌“easy‌ ‌migration‌ ‌button”‌ ‌to‌ ‌accomplish‌ ‌this, there‌ ‌are‌ ‌ways‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌it‌ ‌simpler,‌ ‌more‌ ‌efficient,‌ ‌and‌ ‌achievable.‌ ‌Join‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌learn‌ ‌more‌ ‌and‌ ‌get‌ ‌hands-on‌ ‌expertise‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌GitLab‌ ‌team!‌

At this event, you will:

  • Learn best practices and get migration guidance from experts
  • Learn by doing. Get hands-on to practice converting both freestyle jobs and Jenkinsfiles in Jenkins into GitLab’s .gitlab-ci.yml format
  • Walk away with a better understanding of how to successfully transform your Jenkins pipelines
