An immersive



Aug 26th


Commit to better DevOps

Commit is one immersive day of practical DevOps strategies shared by developers, ops pros, engineers, managers and leaders. You’ll hear about problems solved, cultures changed, and release times halved. But equally important you’ll find a community of people just as passionate as you are about DevOps.

Share your DevOps story

Whether you’ve managed a culture change, discovered the ultimate DevOps hack or cut your release time in half, we’d love to have you share your story at Commit. The “call for proposals” (CFP) window is open now till June 5th. At GitLab we believe everyone can contribute. Now is your chance!

This year we will be hosting one 24 hr virtual Commit on Aug 26th.

What to expect

Forget what you think you know about user conferences. Commit is different: no large, impersonal hotel, no pre-fab food, and no stilted conversations with total strangers. Just on-point advice and strategies from people just like you who are trying to get the most out of DevOps.

Get ready for one of the most intense learning and networking days of your life. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the recaps of our first two Commit user conferences below.

GitLab Groundworks

Join us a day early this fall to participate in one of our four GitLab Groundworks sessions.
