What Is GitLab?
GitLab is a complete DevOps platform, delivered as a single application, fundamentally changing the way Development, Security, and Ops teams collaborate. GitLab helps teams accelerate software delivery from weeks to minutes, reduce development costs, and reduce the risk of application vulnerabilities while increasing developer productivity.
Who Uses GitLab?
Cloud-based DevOps platform that helps small to large enterprises improve business operations using time tracking, incident management, code review, regulatory compliance, and more.

Gitlab as a source code management tool
Comments: Gitlab has enabled analyst programmers to carry out a centralized versioning of applications. And it has allowed us to manage the projects.
Gitlab allows us to have a centralized repository of the source code of the institution's applications
We would like gitlab to have greater integration with other tools on the market.
Private Repos for free
I like the fact that Gitlab is easy to use, loved it because you host private repository for free and also set up a CI/CD pipeline using a free GitLab runner. Awesome version control system I would always recommend for anyone.
No-faults in my honest opinion. Awesome so far
It's good but, definitely not the best
Comments: It works fine, and it's a good alternative for the usual Bitbucket, Jira and Bamboo (or Jenkins) combo that's commonly found on the corporate world. I'd recommend to consider Github Teams or Github Enterprise.
- Unlike Github, it can be installed locally, it also makes it highly customizable - It has CI/CD functionality integrated - It has code search and indexing - It's integrated with a docker registry and multiple code repositories
- It's highly monolithic, if some feature fails, most of the times everything fails - It's not easy to clusterize the service - It's not easy to update, nor to migrate to a new server - It costs the same to use the self-hosted than the cloud-hosted version - Gitlab CI/CD shared (both free and paid minutes) run on a GCE Kubernetes cluster without any fixed IP address so it's hard to access your servers unless you open ports publicly or create a VPN tunnel
This support creating project groups and subgroups to maintain complete project components in structure.
It may incorporate UI based CICD configuration as offered through azure
Comments: GitLab has many great features that help programmers be more organized by keeping track of their code. I recommend it.
As a web developer, I think that GitLab is a powerful platform to share code source versions with team members, also it provides continuous integration and deployment so that everyone can track changes easily.
Personally, I didn't face any problem using GitLab, it is a great tool for developers, but I think that the user interface needs some improvement to be more attractive and easy to use.
