GitLab started as an open source project to help teams collaborate on software development. GitLab's mission is to provide a place where everyone can contribute. Each team member uses our product internally and directly impacts the company roadmap. This exceptional approach works because we're a team of passionate people who want to see each other, the company, and the broader GitLab community succeed and we have the platform to make that possible.
At GitLab, we've created a community of over 3,000 individual contributors and over two million users. Our open source collaboration is a great place to share and learn information about version control, CI/CD, DevSecOps, and all-remote workflows. Learn about our Heroes program, find a local meetup, join our quarterly hackathon, or find out about upcoming events.
GitLab is a single application that spans the entire software development lifecycle. If you're not using GitLab, your DevOps lifecycle is likely spread across any number of applications. These silos take overhead to integrate, manage, configure, and maintain, slowing down your team and your deployments. Moving to a single application will speed up your workflow and help you deliver better software, faster. Learn how GitLab can replace any number of your existing applications.
GitLab is an open source project maintained by GitLab Inc with over 3,000 contributors. You can install and self-manage the GitLab Community Edition which is fully open source under an MIT license. GitLab also provides an Enterprise Edition that has additional features built upon the open source edition. We call this an "open core" model.
Hundreds of thousands of organizations use and contribute to GitLab, and we work together with our community to release a new stable version every month. In order to give back to this community, we grant access to our top tier features, plus 50,000 CI pipeline minutes, for free to qualifying open source organizations through our GitLab for Open Source program.
