GitLab CI vs Heroku CI: What are the differences?
What is GitLab CI? GitLab integrated CI to test, build and deploy your code. GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.
What is Heroku CI? Fast, low-setup CI that’s easy to use. On every push to GitHub, Heroku CI runs your tests in a disposable Heroku app, so there’s never a wait time for a free CI worker. Tests run fast, on Performance dynos.
GitLab CI and Heroku CI can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.

We use Gitlab CI to unit and component test all of our application/components/modules. Therefore we use Docker runners.
GitLab CI is extremely flexible and easy to use. We also enjoy the elastic build infrastructure which is Docker based.
