We're coming to you live from Crete, at the GitLab Summit!

Read on for all the events you can watch and participate in.

Watch live

It's that time again! Every nine months, our entire remote workforce descends on one location for the GitLab Summit. This year, we'll be in Crete, and you're invited!

Before you go off and buy a plane ticket, we should clarify that there probably isn't room for all of you on the island. But we're trying something new this Summit — we're live streaming every day to bring the experience to as many of our remote friends as possible.

Watch

We'll be streaming on YouTube. You can watch Sid and Dmitriy's keynotes, our Santorini trip, GitLabber-led user generated content (UGC) sessions, the 10.1 release, and our final party can all be viewed in one place.

Schedule

We'll likely make some changes to this schedule as we close in on kickoff, so please keep in mind it's a WIP!
