GitLab World Tour: Amplify Your Code

Sep 28, 2016

   GitLab World Tour - London, Oct 19th - Register here!   

Even the sharpest teams face minor setbacks when their code falls flat, or their team is just not in tune. O-boe-y, nobody wants that. Luckily, GitLab is here to pitch you an idea to help you boost your act.

We're kicking off the GitLab World Tour to help harmonize your development process because code is our forte. At this free event, we will explore how teams are using Git and other modern software development practices to work together and build amazing products. Software development is changing and with it, the way developers work. Today’s rapid pace of communication and innovation fosters creativity, collaboration, and information sharing; bringing ideas to life—faster. The GitLab World Tour is an interactive discussion on what's next for software development.

What to Expect

From ideation and planning to committing, testing, deploying, and getting feedback, we are building a toolset that takes an all-inclusive approach to the development process.


We introduced our Master Plan and now we need feedback from our rock star community as we think about how we can build the best toolset to help modern developers move faster from idea to production. On Tour, you'll hear from GitLab CEO Sid Sijbrandij on the GitLab Master Plan, have the opportunity to ask our developers questions, give feedback about our product direction, and share your ideas and projects.


Conversational Development

Conversational Development (ConvDev) is a natural evolution of software development that carries a conversation across functional groups throughout the development process, enabling developers to track the full path of development in a cohesive and intuitive way. ConvDev accelerates the development lifecycle by fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing from idea to production.

It's an exciting time to be a developer. There is a steady rise of new tools, languages, and practices. We'll take a look at some incredible community projects and share information that you can take back to your teams including information on Conversational Development and the modern development lifecycle, Continuous Integration, and trends in open source.


We value our community and are eager to trade ideas with you. We've planned our sessions to be interactive so there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions and share feedback.

GitLab Vision

The vision of GitLab is to allow everyone to collaborate on all digital content so people can cooperate effectively and achieve better results, faster. We can do this by providing an integrated set of tools that allows you to go faster from idea to production.

Project #AmplifyYourCode

At GitLab, we owe our success to our community and the thousands of contributors who help make great. Thanks to you, we can ship faster to deliver the best toolset for the modern developer. Now, it's your turn to take the spotlight.

Submit your best GitLab project to amplify your code and to have your project showcased in front of hundreds of developers during the GitLab World Tour and promoted on the GitLab blog and social channels. What are you waiting for? Make your voice heard! Who knows, it could be your greatest hit.


It's not a tour without some commemorative item that says, "I was here." Every stop on this tour will have their own city-specific GitLab swag.


Are you ready to amplify your code?

The World Tour will make stops in London, New York City, and Amsterdam before ending on a high note in San Francisco at our user conference early next year. The GitLab Team will travel city to city, working in concert with git users like yourself, gathering feedback and stories to help make your git workflow even more seamless. We would also like to trumpet about some major developments features in GitLab.

Here is a list of some of the topics we will be covering:

  1. Modern Software Development
  2. Conversational Development (ConvDev)
  3. Continuous Integration
  4. Continuous Delivery & Continuous Deployment
  5. The Open Source Community
  6. Innersourcing, Microservices, and Version Control
  7. GitLab Direction
  8. GitLab Community Edition, Enterprise Edition, and

We hope that some of those themes will strike a cord with you and your team. Come, share your ideas and amplify your code at a stop near you.
