Great article. I also work for a government, but about 15 thousand km’s away in Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada. We use GitLab CI as well. I’ve written a couple articles on my Medium account about our use of it.
I’m looking forward to future posts from GDS. I’ll also be looking at Nectar — it’s interesting that it’s built on OpenShift. We’re a Red Hat shop and are going to evaluate OpenShift soon.
