TL;DR: Could you point to the best resources for people to learn/teach/introduce GitLab to non-technical users?
I’m submitting my request through this forum by suggestion of Mansour Mboup.
I’m writing to see if you could point me to the best resources for introducing non-technical users to GitLab.
More specifically, I’m going to be giving a workshop on open science, and I’m going to make the case for using cutting edge tools such as GitLab for open science.
I know some people are pushing for the same or related reforms, but to the best of my knowledge DevOps practices are, understandably, not the standard in psychological research.
One of the goals of my workshop is to show the tremendous potential these tools could have for open science.
Importantly, the audience is going to be comprised of students, and possibly more senior researchers, working on psychology and related fields.
Some might have started using the R programming language to analyze their
datasets, but in general they can be described as non-programmers/non-technical users.
Since, I’m a Linux geek and my idea of user-friendly software is one with a good CLI, I’m afraid I might not know the best resources to direct them to.
Could you please be so kind as to suggest what are the best resources to teach non-technical people about GitLab, and user-friendly GUI’s like the web IDE?
My greatest thanks to everyone involved in making GitLab as amazing as it is.
P.S: I did not post this on the GitLab for education topic because my institution has not applied for that offering. Maybe my workshop could be a step towards making the case for them applying, but as it stands we’re going to be using the free GitLab SaaS offering.
