Your Own GitLab in 5s!

GitLab is a web-based Git repository management tool that helps teams to collaborate on code. Also, it provides a complete DevOps platform, from version control, code review, issue tracking, and CI/CD.

One of the key benefits of Gitlab is its versatility and flexibility because it can be hosted on-premise and can be easily customized to suit the needs of every team. Additionally, it has a wide range of features and integrations, making it a good choice for teams.

Using Docker, it is incredibly easy and fast to set up a GitLab instance. You can spin up a Gitlab instance in a single command, without worrying about manually installing and configuring dependencies.

This makes it a great choice for software developers who want to start with GitLab quickly and easily:

IT-Tools Collection

As a software developer and aspiring Docker enthusiast, I'm always looking for new tools that can help me make my workflow more efficient and boost my productivity. Recently, I stumbled upon a collection of web-based tools called IT-Tools, which has quickly become one of my favorite resources for simplifying various tasks.

I first discovered IT-Tools through an article or tweet that showcased some of its practical tools, but unfortunately, I forgot to bookmark the source. Nevertheless, I was so impressed by the collection that I created a tutorial on self-hosting IT-Tools with Docker.

In this article, I'll provide a step-by-step guide on installing and deploying IT-Tools with Docker on your local machine, server, or cluster.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced software developer, you'll find something useful in the IT-Tools collection.

So, let's dive in and explore this fantastic resource and learn to deploy it:
