During each month, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the highlighted contribution area, improve your skills, and work with the talented community and GitLab Team members while contributing to your favorite GitLab Open Source project. On top of the learning opportunities, we would like to acknowledge all community contributions with limited-edition rewards. Given that the onboarding process and getting familiarized with GitLab's source code can take some time, we will be running this initiative for 6 weeks each time.

Participate in May's - June's Theme: Backend!

    There is not a requirement to sign up for participating. However, we recommend registering at our meetup.com group to receive updates and reminders for our upcoming office hour calls.
