GitLab Training

This training is designed as a two days hands-on training introducing Git, GitLab, Workflows, CI/CD and many best practices with GitLab and Git.

The training participants will get an in-depth insight into the Git basics, configuration and "good" commits. They also learn about GitLab basics with repository and user management and continue to practice Git version control with real-life exercises.

Moving along from standalone environments, participants collaborate with others and get an overview on different Git workflows. Solving conflicts, rebasing, merging and even squasing commits also is practiced. Continuing with practices, the training dives deep into continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) with GitLab, runners and DevOps production pipelines.

On top of that, the training provides more hints on GitLab usage (project management, Web IDE, API, etc.), tools, IDEs and UIs for working with Git and anything proven useful for daily best practice.

Target audience are developers and Linux administrators. Linux basics and CLI/editor knowledge is required.

We have developed our training material based on years of experience in development, professional services and training. To support our work, please join the official training sessions and get your ticket at NETWAYS.

Render mermaid.js

Many diagrams are rendered using mermaid.js. The diagrams are stored in *.mmd files and are rendered using the mermaid-cli.

# Uses a containerized mermaid-cli to render all images

To render a single image:

docker run -u `id -u`:`id -g` --rm -v $(pwd)/_images/mermaid:/data minlag/mermaid-cli -e png -i "/data/image-to-render.mmd"


The training material focuses on where every attendee gets their own GitLab instance.

The vm/ directory provides a fallback VM which can be exported from Vagrant/VirtualBox and is provisioned onto the training notebook @NETWAYS.
