GitLab at Stanford

If you are using a Git a revision system to manage your code - either with a vendor service or an internal Git server, or you are using other type of revision systems such as SVN, CVS,  or you aren't using a revision control tool right now, it is often a challenge if you need to share code or collaborate with groups cross Stanford.

In this session, we are introducing pilot Gitlab service at Stanford, a UIT managed Git revision management service that allows you to assemble your own project team, track issues, share project code with fine-grained access control with Stanford community or with public!

Topics include:

  • What is Gitlab, and how it is implemented at Stanford
  • How to get started: signup and create your GitLab project
  • Simple workflows with GitLab
  • Security - groups and project visibilities, data security
  • Integration - time permit, Slack/Jenkins/Gitlab CI

This is a basic Gitlab introduction session, not a Git tutorial training. No prior git knowledge is required.
