Usage of git.heindl-solutions.com


Introduction

On demand, we provide a private and secured version control service for our customers during software development. For this we use git combined with a Continuous Integration build powered by GitLab CE.

Advantages are:

  • Simple access to our provided source code.
  • Keep up to date with our development progress easily.
  • Contribute your own source code changes without the fear of breaking something.
  • Maximum interaction with our customers during development and testing of a project.
  • Save all source code and all development history locally at your company.

On this page we describe the possibilities to use the GitLab service at https://git.heindl-solutions.com/.
