Gerrit, a Java based Git server and code review tool allows developers to stay in their favorite environment for every step of the code review process. Gerrit deeply integrates with Continuous Integration tools. Jenkins will ensure that developers’ merges and revisions pass all defined quality gates. After introducing Gerrit and its interaction with Jenkins, Nicolai and Sheta will demonstrate how to configure and connect those two platforms and demonstrate what can be achieved with this setup.
