Course Overview


GitLab is a web-based tool that provides a Git repository manager. By interacting with its intuitive web interface, you will be able to: store your project remotely, track issues, interact with your colleagues by integrating their work and comments, provide guidance to them and your users by integrating a documentation, a license and a roadmap for your project development, and much more, such as continuous integration and pipeline deployment. GitLab is an open-source projects and it allows to have institutional-specific instances, such as the EMBL GitLab platform, that is hosted and managed internally. Even so, you are still able to make your projects publicly visible or to work with collaborators outside EMBL.

Project Management with GitLab

During this event you will learn how to use GitLab as a Project Management tool, fostering collaboration, capturing issues and tasks, assigning them and keeping the deadlines.

The session will consist of demos of some of example projects and some resources setup at EMBL using this technology. You will also be able to drill down into the technical details and discuss them with some of our local Git and GitLab experts.

Important information

The only action you need to do before the workshop is to access and, if you want, start exploring it.

Please notice that we will organise a follow-up to this course in case you are also interested in hosting web pages through GitLab, on the 4th of August. GitLab can indeed be used for static websites hosting, e.g. for your group page, for your CV, or to show an overview of your project status to collaborators or to the public. Consider registering if you want to know more about how.



Bookings are closed for this event.
