In my opinion, GitLab is a freemium software development cplaboration platform which allows users to create and maintain their own repositories, as well as build and test new sets of code on server instances – all with an integrated issue tracking system. It was originally created by the founders of GitHub – in fact, it was renamed from ‘GitHub Enterprise’ to ‘GitLab’ when the company was acquired by GitLab Inc. in 2016. With regards to macOS Calendar, it is a personal calendar application made by Apple for the macOS operating system. This application is able to synchronise with online calendars such as Google Calendar, and it also allows users to sync their calendars through iCloud.
