GitLab DevOps Fundamentals Training


Concurrent DevOps is a new way of thinking about how we create and ship software. Rather than organizing work in a sequence of steps and handoffs, the power of working concurrently is in unleashing collaboration across the organization. In this course we’ll walk through the fundamentals of using GitLab as a complete DevOps platform. Attendees will gain hands-on experience using GitLab throughout the lifecycle stages of Manage, Plan, Create, Verify, Package, Secure, Release, Configure, Monitor, and Defend.
