GitLab at Stanford

If you are using a Git 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 no revision tool at all, it is often a challenge if you need to share code or collaborate with groups across Stanford.

In this session, we are introducing the pilot Gitlab service at Stanford, a UIT-managed Git revision management service allows you to assemble your own project team, track issues, and share project code with fine-grained access control with Stanford community or with the 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 permitting) - Slack/Jenkins/Gitlab CI

This is a basic Gitlab introduction session, not a Git tutorial training.
