You can get started in three easy steps:

# 1. Install a package with repository for your system:
# On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS repository:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl

# On RHEL, enable RHSCL repository for you system:
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

# 2. Install the collection:
$ sudo yum install devtoolset-8

# 3. Start using software collections:
$ scl enable devtoolset-8 bash

At this point you should be able to use gcc and other tools just as a normal application. See examples bellow:

$ gcc hello.c
$ sudo yum install devtoolset-8-valgrind
$ valgrind ./a.out
$ gdb ./a.out

In order to view the individual components included in this collection, including additional development tools, you can run:

$ sudo yum list devtoolset-8\*

Developer Toolset Software Collection available on aarch64 for testing

Based on big demand, there are also aarch64 builds of devtoolset-8 packages available on buildroot (testing repository at this point). To install it on your aarch64 machine, run:

$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl-rh
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable centos-sclo-rh-testing
$ sudo yum install devtoolset-8
