IT:AD:GitLab

Summary

  • Advantages:
    • Free hosting for private repositories.
    • Has CI directly built into the free online service.
      • Not sure if they have a .NET runner. But I see they have runners on Azure, so there's hope…
    • The Build Server instructions are in the repository. Smart.
  • Considerations:
    • It's still a distant third behing IT:AD:BitBucket and IT:AD:GitHub
    • Started in a different jurisdiction than most cloud services (Ukraine).
      • Think that's no longer an issue, as it is now a US based company1)
  • Disadvantages:
    • Being a smaller, scrappy service, tech-support docs are going got be less prevalent.
