Apple just announced Xcode 10 is now integrated with GitLab

No other details were shared in this tweet, but this image from the stage of WWDC says all it needs to. In a post-Microsoft + GitHub world — it has been a crazy 24 hours for GitLab. More than 2,000 people tweeted about #movingtogitlab. We imported over 100,000 repositories, and we've seen a 7x increase in orders. We went live on Bloomberg TV. And on top of that, Apple announced an Xcode integration with GitLab. Here's an interesting exchange between Emily Chang and Sid Sijbrandij on Bloomberg Technology: Emily: I spoke with Satya Nadella earlier today, and he said "he promises to put developers first." Do you not believe him, or do you think it's not possible for a company with so many objectives to really put developers first? Sid: I believe him. Microsoft has shown that it is the new Microsoft, and they've done great. The new CEO, Nat Friedman, shows he really understands developers. So I believe him when he says they are going to be good maintainers of GitHub. Emily: So, then what's so bad about GitHub? Sid: There's nothing bad about GitHub. Emily: What’s so much better about GitLab? Sid: It's a fundamentally different product. It's open core, so a lot of it is open source. You can host it yourself. But second and I think most importantly, it's not just code hosting. With GitHub you host your code. GitLab is the entire DevOps lifecycle. So all the way from planning something to rolling it out, container registries, monitoring — all in a single product. That allows you to get the whole organization on the same page. And that's why people are flocking to it. They go on to talk about being a sustainable business, financials, etc.

How to recognize burnout (and how to prevent it)

Erica Lindberg, writes on the GitLab blog about preventing burnout: Set clear boundaries between work and home — I'm trying to limit how many days I allow myself to work over eight hours by either scheduling other activities in the evening with friends or my partner (it works better when you've committed to someone so they can help hold you accountable. These things can be anything from rock climbing to dinner or watching a movie) or simply blocking out my calendar and setting reminders for when it's time to shut off. And when it is time to shut off I'm come up with a "ritual" of shutting down my computer, turning off my keyboard, monitor, and light in my office – this makes it harder to come back to "just finish up one last thing" I really needed to be reminded of this. It's a shame when you know what to do, but you choose not to, and allow yourself to creep closer to burnout.

How working at GitLab has changed my view on work and life

Hazel Yang, on the GitLab blog shares insights about her last two years working at GitLab: Show gratitude Learn from failure Trust your team and grow with them Befriend managers and colleagues Embrace diversity I'm a HUGE fan of the concept of a "retrospective" which is most known by developers as a practice of agile software development. It is important to look back and review what's going well, what's not going well, and what needs to change or be stopped all together. This post is a product of that type of discipline.
