The Demo Systems Handbook page provides an overview of the demo system infrastructure used for demonstrating GitLab features, value propositions, and workflows.
See the [Environments sub-page][/handbook/customer-success-demo-systems/environments] for specific details on how to access the environments for use in your demos.
Solutions Architects are occasionally called on at a moments notice to give a demo or join a call to show a prospect or customer specific GitLab functionality. A best practice for being prepared for these demo requests is to have a minimized browser window with various content preloaded into the browser tabs. Examples of common environments utilized are listed below. Note that accessing some of these links are only enabled for GitLab team-members.
There are a variety of locations for demo groups and projects today. We are in the process of reviewing and cataloging all existing materials as part of the FY21 Q3 OKR - Establish a well-maintained demonstration repository.
Today, demo groups and projects are split between several distinct locations:
GitLab Demo Portal Catalog Libraries - provides demo scenarios with corresponding videos and project build out on the GitLab demo environment. Some demo projects also have wiki pages with additional resources, such as a link to a slide presentation, demo script, and objection handling.
GitLab.com - there are a variety of groups and projects with Content
Guided Explorations - has projects for a variety of topics, from language-specific feature flag examples, various DevOps patterns, pipeline tips, tricks, and hacks for windows, and more.
GitLab CS Tools - group that provides projects for GitLab cs automation and migration tools
Customer Success Demos - centralized location for demos used by Customer Success, including a set of golden repos for different application types, security demos, and more.
There are several slide decks stored on google drive that are commonly used for demos. Feel free to make a copy of any of these to personalize for your own needs.
