### Recruitment methods
 
1. **GitLab First Look (formerly the UX Research Panel)** is a group of users who have opted in to receive research studies from GitLab. To find out more or to join, please visit [GitLab First Look](/community/gitlab-first-look/index.html). This is a good fit for studies that are aimed at GitLab users who are software developers and related roles. The panel currently does not have many security professionals, nor senior engineering leaders.

1. **Respondent.io** is a recruitment service that is a good choice for studies aimed at software professionals who are not necessarily GitLab users. This has been a decent source of security professionals and some other harder-to-reach users. Respondent is also a great choice for when you need users quickly, or are juggling many studies.

### Why are you migrating to GitLab?
 
The Drupal project began before [Git was invented](/20-years-open-source/). The first version control system that the project used was CVS, before the project migrated to Git in 2012. Over the course of almost two decades the Drupal project has developed our own contribution practices and developer tools, and while many of those tools and practices are leading examples in the open source world, others have fallen behind. For example, the Drupal project still handles code contributions through a patch workflow rather than through a pull/merge request workflow that has become the standard for collaborative development.

We shared our tests on Twitter and with [GitLab First Look](/community/gitlab-first-look/index.html), our UX Research mailing list. We received more than 600 responses, and the results were evenly distributed between the original versus the redesign. The findings weren’t really surprising, but they validated our redesigns. We knew our work improved the experience of our users and we could now apply a similar approach to the other settings pages.

DevOps speed is a competitive advantage for businesses. According to DORA, [companies that deploy more frequently perform better in the market](https://cloudplatformonline.com/2018-state-of-devops.html). Everyone wants to be able to do their jobs better and deploy more frequently, but as the organization grows, speed bumps keep getting in the way:
 
* **Too many integration points** – Connecting [CI/CD](/ci-cd/) to all of the different tools in a [DevOps toolchain](/topics/devops/) is confusing and keeps adding more steps and more points of failure to the process.

* **Brittle tools** – We're spending more time maintaining and updating these tools than actually creating new features.
* **Slow modernization** – We want to leverage microservices and cloud native development, but we spend too much time putting out fires.

No team is immune to process challenges, and as organizations grow these challenges only get worse. Sometimes there’s a lack of visibility during the development process, sometimes legacy systems create instability and lack functionality, and sometimes things just _stop working_. Continuous integration and delivery [(CI/CD)](/ci-cd/) enables teams to deploy faster, and finding the right tool can make a big difference in the development lifecycle. Great companies know how to identify problems and when it’s time to find better solutions.
