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.
