GitLab Review

Facilitates code collaboration and parallel efforts in software development

What is our primary use case?

We are using GitLab for managing our code. We have created branches and posted code, and as our team members complete assignments, the code is pushed to there.

What is most valuable?

The best thing is that as the developers work on separate tasks, all of the code goes there and the other team members don't have to wait on each other to finish. We can all work on our code in tandem.

What needs improvement?

The documentation could be improved to help newcomers better understand things like creating new branches. 

For how long have I used the solution?

The company has been using GitLab for a year and a half, and I have been using it for between eight and nine months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

GitLab is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is easy to scale with GitLab. We can do work on virtual machines, pushing the code there and working with it.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not had contact with technical support. Rather, I relied on the other developers for assistance.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used BitBucket, but we have transferred everything to GitLab. Everything that BitBucket can do is available in GitLab.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a very good product and everything is working well. I would recommend it.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
