A Collaboration Service for Project Teams
GitLab is a service used to track changes in computer files to facilitate software projects. It is primarily used by developers, technology instructors, and others with technical roles. GitLab leverages the version control capabilities of Git and adds its own features to support project team collaboration and communication.
A project in GitLab might contain computer programs, documentation, and/or data related to a software development effort; a research project; a student assignment; or another scenario involving teams collaborating to create, edit, and review content.
GitLab also provides security controls to manage access to a project and its associated files and content. Project management capabilities include the option to create/track milestones and to track and remediate issues identified in software projects.
