What is the Early Access program?

At GitLab we believe that everyone can contribute. We are asking for your support in testing features that might become a part of GitLab in the future.

By joining the Early Access program you will have hands-on experience with some of the brand new functionalities that we are currently working on. You will receive test instructions to help you get the most out of these early features, and your feedback will be a crucial part of their development.
