What is DevOps?
DevOps – an amalgamation of “development” and “operations” – is a method of working that unites people, processes and technology that enables formerly closed-off tech departments such as software development, IT operations and security to coordinate and collaborate to produce better products.
Launched in 2011, GitLab (GTLB) is an online repository for software that allows multiple team members to review and collaborate on coding projects which can be released as open-source software (where the original code can be openly inspected), or closed-source.
Initially starting life as a place to store code online (known as a repository), GitLab broadened its offering into the entire software development lifecycle from code management to deployment, security and monitoring.
GitLab listed on the Nasdaq in late 2021. Its biggest competitor is GitHub, which was bought by Microsoft in 2018 for $7.5bn (£5.7bn, €6.8bn). Both GitLab and GitHub are DevOps platforms.

For its fiscal first quarter ended 30 April, GitLab reported an adjusted loss of 18 cents per share on revenue that skyrocketed 75% to $87.4m.
Analysts had pencilled in a loss of 27 cents per share on revenue of $78.1m, according to according to figures widely available on financial news sites.
“GitLab’s stellar performance was driven by continued expansions in the installed base along with record new customer additions,” William Blair analyst Jason Ader wrote in a note obtained by Capital.com.
“Overall, we view GitLab as a generational winner in the DevOps space and see a long-tail growth opportunity as it helps customers streamline their tool sets (and spending) in this $40bn market.”
“As we look forward, we are seeing continued strong momentum for customers adopting our One DevOps platform,” GitLab co-founder and CEO Sid Sijbrandij said in a statement.
