GitLab with Git Basics Training
This class is designed to provide users with an introduction to GitLab. It starts with an overview of GitLab so you can learn the basics about what GitLab does and why DevOps teams use it. Then it dives into Git, the version control system used by GitLab for source code management (SCM). You'll learn and practice fundamental Git concepts and commands. Throughout the course flow we'll provide demos and hands-on practice with the foundational processes and tasks that DevOps teams use in GitLab, such as committing changes, creating branches and merge requests, using a CI/CD pipeline, and accessing security scanning.
New certification! Starting in May 2020, we're including class participant access to our new GitLab Certified Associate certification assessments. To earn certification, GitLab with Git Basics Training participants must receive a passing score on both a written assessment and a lab assessment evaluated by a GitLab Professional Services Engineer.
