Today, modern software development teams need version control for everything, automated testing, support for complex build and deploy configurations, and end-to-end visibility and traceability so they can work to improve their software development process over time. But for most teams, getting this tooling right is incredibly difficult.
GitLab provides the most efficient platform for software development and delivery, covering the entire lifecycle from idea to production.
This demonstration will highlight GitLab’s single platform for the full software development lifecycle, from idea to production, through chat, issues, planning, merge request, CI, CD, measurement, and monitoring.
We want to to make sure everyone can replicate this demo. We've changed this page to make it work with Google Container Engine (GKE) instead of OpenShift. If you encounter issues replicating this demo on GKE or on your own Kubernetes cluster please open an issue. We're still working to improve this demo further, please see all open idea-to-production issues.
For GitLab sales people giving this demo, you should skip setting up the cluster and GitLab instance, and instead use
gitlab.i2p.online. Do the steps for Create a user once, and then start each new demo at Setup a group and project in GitLab. If you've given the demo before, make sure to delete the
minimal-ruby-app project before starting!
Note: If using a shared demo, each demo-giver only needs to do this once.
Now let's register a new user in our GitLab server.
- Create a user with your name and email address (no verification sent)
Note: If using a shared demo, each new demo will start here. Log in at gitlab.i2p.online.
We've got GitLab running and we're logged in. Since we'll want to work as a team, we'll create a GitLab group. Groups allow you to organize projects into directories and quickly gives users access to several projects at once. With GitLab 9.0, you can even nest subgroups under groups to match your org structure. Let’s give ours a unique name.
- Click hamburger menu in top-left corner > Groups
- Give the group a unique name, perhaps the name of the company you're demoing to, or a made up name (all lowercase, no spaces or special characters other than
