New learning unit in the Network eAcademy: “Version control: Gitlab”

The GÉANT project’s Network Development team announces the release of a new unit in the GÉANT Network eAcademy (as part of the “AGILE, DevOps, CI/CD” track): Gitlab.

By following this unit, you will get insights on the popular version control software Gitlab, which combines source code management, review, planning and monitoring with continuous integration, delivery and deployment. Gitlab can be used by network engineers to treat the network as code. The step-by-step instructions will guide you in your journey to start creating branches or merge requests, work with issues, epics, milestones and much more.
