What is Git
Git is a distributed version control system for tracking changes in source code during software development.

GitLab is a web-based DevOps lifecycle tool that provides a Git-repository manager providing, issue-tracking and continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), using an open-source license, developed by GitLab Inc.
