GitLab has transformed from offering just version control to becoming the first integrated product for DevOps. With GitLab you can go all the way from chatting about an idea to measuring it in production without spending time on configuring a bunch of tools.

With each monthly release, we work to bring more aspects of social coding, continuous integration, release automation, and monitoring into a single tool. With GitLab 9.3, we're helping teams improve code quality, reduce cycle time and make complex projects easier to manage.
