The goal of this SEG is to explore how we can increase customer usage and company revenue by providing an alternative to GitPod or Codespaces directly within GitLab. Although GitLab integrates with GitPod, there may be opportunities to provide convenience to customers by delivering a cloud hosted development environment natively within GitLab.com. We strive to provide an easy way for GitLab users to be able to run and test their code on the GitLab platform. It will enable a remote development experience where you can modify and run your code on any device with access to a browser.
