Deploy an entire Kubernetes-based continuous integration continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline on GCP right now! This in-product, interactive tutorial takes you step-by-step through configuring Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Source Repositories, Cloud Build, and Spinnaker to automatically trigger build, test, canary and deploy code.
Whether you're looking to move your current pipelines to Google Cloud or start working with Cloud Build, our end-to-end CI solution, Google has a solution for you.
Cloud Build is a service that executes your builds on Google Cloud Platform infrastructure. Cloud Build can import source code from Cloud Storage, Cloud Source Repositories, GitHub, or Bitbucket, execute a build to your specifications, and produce artifacts such as Docker containers or Java archives.
Artifact Registry provides a single location for managing packages and Docker container images. It integrates with CI/CD tools and Google Cloud runtime environments so that you can manage the full artifact lifecycle.
Google Cloud Source Repositories are fully featured, private Git repositories hosted on Google Cloud Platform. Collaborate easily and securely manage your code on a fully featured, scalable, private Git repository. Extend your Git workflow by connecting to other GCP tools, including Cloud Build, Stackdriver, and Cloud Pub/Sub. Access code fast, with powerful, indexed search across all your owned repositories.

Artifact Registry is a Google Cloud service that enables you to create and manage repositories for Maven and npm packages.

Quickstart
Learn how to keep bugs out of production with testing strategies for CI/CD, using real-world examples from Cloud Functions.
Event
Spinnaker is an open-source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform used by companies like Netflix, Waze, Target, and Cloudera, plus a new open-source command line interface (CLI) tool called Halyard that makes it easy to deploy Spinnaker itself.

Video stream

Learn how Google Cloud provides an end-to-end workflow for developing, deploying, and debugging applications to services such as App Engine and others and how Cloud Source Repositories can be used with other Google Cloud tools to implement continuous integration process and validate check-in with an automated build and test.
The DevOps principle of “Shifting Left” promotes testing early in the development cycle. This practice can significantly improve software quality and system health. Learn how to use Cloud Build to provision, test, and tear down self-contained Kubernetes environments that replicate complete production systems, so you can run full-system tests as part of every build, safely and cost effectively.
Learn out-of-the-box devops best practices and automation, managing infrastructure and configs as code from a centralized git repository so you can maintain visibility, control, and compliance of hybrid workloads. Navigate and upkeep multiple tools, configs, policy systems and languages to ensure that their security and compliance requirements are met, while enabling developers agility.
Use development tools like Skaffold and Google Cloud Build to develop at 10x velocity. We’ll cover how Skaffold intelligently rebuilds and redeploys your application on every code change, all from the comfort of your favorite IDE.
Ensure your software supply chain follows known and secure path before your code is deployed in a Google Kubernetes Engine cluster with Cloud Build binary authorization best practices.
Use Cloud Build to create pipelines to validate your infra-as-code environment definitions and safely update existing environments. We’ll also discuss good practices around versioning and publishing env definitions and using those in application deployment pipelines running in tools such as Cloud Build, Jenkins, or Spinnaker.
Learn how to best leverage managed base images, GCR vulnerability scanning, binary authorization, and more to improve your overall DevOps security.
Build a continuous delivery system that shows how to automatically connect the dots from your git repository to the multi-stage quality ladder - experimentation, validation, testing, release, etc.- that your releases must travel to reach production. You will learn how to use CI/CD tools to test and deploy apps across GCP serverless offerings such as Cloud Functions, serverless containers, and more.
Deciding on a CI/CD system for Kubernetes can be a frustrating experience - there are a gazilion to choose from, and traditional systems were built before Kubernetes existed. We’ve teamed up with industry leaders to build a standard set of components, APIs and best practices for cloud native, CI/CD systems. Through examples and demos, we will show off new, Kubernetes-native resources that can be used to get your code from source to production with a modern development workflow that works in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.
Kubernetes and Istio can help make safe application deployment easier by providing rich support for advanced rollout patterns such as canary releases.
Dive into GCP's new fully managed serverless platform that enables you to run arbitrary HTTP stateless containers while only paying for what you use and without worrying about the infrastructure.
