Today saw an milestone achievement made with this blog! We completed our first automated deployment 😎. Naturally the only way to celebrate such an achievement is to share how it was done.
I only recently discovered how useful Gitlab CI is. Gitlab is an open source Github competitor. I've used it quite a lot over the years. After signing up for a gitlab.com account, you gain access to 2000 free build minutes per month for private projects. You can also run your own private CI runner if you are so inclined.
