Welcome to the EMBL’s Git Week, on 2-4 Nov 2022!

Please select a ticket for each day you are planning to attend

See detailed schedule below

During this week you will learn how to build simple websites to showcase your research or tools using GitLab Pages and how to use GitLab’s Continuous Integration to ensure a high quality code, perform automatic testing, build containers and foster collaboration using software development best practices.

Sessions this week 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.


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.

Git Week activities will be run during mornings (10:00-12:00 CEST). Sessions in the afternoons (13:30-15:30 PM CEST) will be available for technical discussion and troubleshooting.
Each half day includes approximately 2 hours of content, usually with some hands-on component where people can try it out themselves. You are free to join all sessions or just some of them, depending on your needs and interests.
