The make tool has been around since 1976 and is a prime example of mature software. In this article, I will give you an introduction to using it as a CI/CD tool. All examples are available on Github

The code examples for my presentation "Simplifying your test runs with Make" for Nordic Testing Days 2021 are now online on Github.
