Presentation Open Access
Starting 2009, we give trainings for research scientists on how to use the software engineering tools Subversion and Mantis. In this talk we present the improvements which we achieved in the past and how they contributed our new GitLab based concept for our new workshop series.
Over the years, our training has become a well-received two-day workshop. The main goal of the training is to enable the participants to get started with the DLR software engineering tools in context of structured software development. Particularily, the combination of profound theory with hands-on exercises made it a valuable experience for the participants. Participants thereby are scientists from a wide variety of domains. In addition, a series of spin-off trainings was also established covering related topics like open source licenses or agile methodologies. However, our old tools are on the verge of being retried and a new system - GitLab - will take over. This gives us the possibility to restructure our training using our experiences, collected feedback, to create an updated version of our training. We will present this new concept, as well as why it became what it is now.
