GitLab DevOps Fundamentals Training

Overview

Concurrent DevOps is a new way of thinking about how to 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. Throughout the four courses in this learning offering (GitLab with Git Basics, CI/CD, Project Management, and Security Essentials), we’ll walk your team members 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, and Release.

Due to the comprehensiveness of the GitLab capabilities covered in this course, it is recommended for customers with Ultimate licenses.
