[Watch] Making Best Practices the Default with GitLab

 


We pride ourselves on our adaptability to each client’s unique needs and constraints — and no two projects are the same. This is typically most evident in a project’s infrastructure, the tools, and utilities a team uses during development to track work items, streamline communication, and estimate schedules. Customizing infrastructure takes time and effort, and when timelines are tight or the engagement short, it can be hard to justify that investment. Shouldn’t we be focusing on the critical path?

Recognizing this, and in the spirit of continual self improvement, we have been investing in tools and “templates” that reduce that up-front cost so that every project can be our best, most efficient effort, no matter the constraints. GitLab has emerged as a keystone technology for us thanks to a licensing and security model that allows us to invite clients in to collaborate with us directly, and an extensible design that has enabled us to use Git in applications that it wasn’t ever intended to support.

It Takes All of Us Working Together to Solve Thorny Civic Problems

Puget Sound has its share of challenges—homelessness, traffic congestion, and affordable housing to name a few. But, an underlying issue is that we're not working together to find solutions. I'm active with the Washington Technology Industry Association's Ion program—a collaboration incubator that brings together tech, government, and not-for-profits to tackle community challenges. In this video report, I explore this important topic.

[Watch] Making Best Practices the Default with GitLab

GitLab was recently in the house for DevOps Stories Seattle, "a single day symposium dedicated to real-life DevOps transformation stories." Hosting the event here in our Seattle office was a great opportunity for us to cross-pollinate with other people and organizations that are using GitLab to solve their own challenges. Software Engineering Program Lead, Jason Haensly, joined in on the knowledge-sharing with a presentation describing how we use GitLab throughout the product development process, and why we think it's such a win.
