gitlab logo new

In this post we list GitLab projects we have implemented over the years (since 2016)
for our customers (and for our own company’s development needs) – all based on GitLab commercial editions or free.

Our company has extensive experience in software development and ALM / SCM / DevOps / DevSecOps / IT / AppSec / SDLC methodologies and tooling,
so it allows us to quickly explore our customers’ needs and help them choose the best methods and tools that could fit their exact needs.

We continuously update the following list (you may register below to get updates).

First release: February 2018

GitLab Projects we have planned & applied over the years:

  • Custom integration with Jira (e.g. creating GitLab branches from Jira)
