We set up GitLab in 2014 because we needed a Git hosting system for an internal project and couldn’t use the internal Git repo for obscure security policy reasons. People enjoyed it, and now we run a couple of servers, including some on behalf of universities (who are our customers).
My go-to resources for learning about DevOps, SRE, DevNetOps: GitLab blog posts, CACM Practice section (aka “ACM Queue”), Network To Code, chats with colleagues over
Questions for the community: How can universities make use of GitLab’s wonderful education license offering (no-fee Ultimate license for education purposes) and support some limited level of “professional” use at the same time, without having to run two servers (which would create unnecessary “toil” and impede collaboration)?
