Contribute to a product you want to work with, in a unique format
The next Contribute coming up will be in May 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana in the United States! All info to prepare for this will be on the project page as soon as we’ve signed with a hotel.
“The name and concept of Contribute comes back to our GitLab Values of Collaboration, Results, Effectiveness, Diversity & Inclusion, and Transparency. We believe “Everyone Can Contribute” and this motto is engrained in everything we do and intergral to our success as a team and company. We are better together and because of each other so we cask at this event that everyone contribute.”
What to expect?
This is not your average conference where you join sessions that we’ve set up for you and passively listen to the content. You are signing up to contribute.
“The goal of Contribute is to get to know the people in the GitLab community better. The better you know people, the easier it is to collaborate. We want to build trust between groups.
As you surely know, we are an all remote company with over 500 team members in more than 50 countries worldwide. Since we don’t have watercooler talk or an office we also do a lot of fun stuff when we are all get together! We would love for you to get to know us and each other, without a focus on your job or title. This way you will see the people that contribute to GitLab instead of just a name on your screen. We have a whole list of fun activities planned for New Orleans and are excited to spend time with you.”
