Who, What, Why

Why Contribute? We love meeting people in the GitLab community. With that we mean anyone contributing to GitLab, with code, with content, with features or requests but also our customers, resellers, partners and our team’s Significant Others.

We would like to show you that your contribution is building something bigger and your voice and concerns are influential in what we do.

We’d like to hear from you about experiences, preferences and knowledge, and build real world, useful products.

All this comes back to our GitLab Values of Collaboration, Results, Effectiveness, Diversity and Transparency.

Still with us?

Tickets and Registration

Tickets are priced at $2499. Once you arrive we will provide with all you will need, so you can just focus on getting the most out of your experience and contributions. We have special discounts for our team, their SO’s and our community which will show at registration. Details on all inclusions are on our project page. We will keep updating that page with things like FAQ, tips and tricks from our team on how to make the best out your attendance, packinglists etc.

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. We would like to hear from you what topics you would like to discuss, and where your interests lie. More details on that are on the sign up form you will find later.

We work Remote-Only

As you surely know, we are an all remote company with over 390 team members in more than 45 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! Examples are playing Bubble Soccer in Austin, TX or Ziplining in Mexico. We visited Santorini in Greece and Table Mountain or Robben Island in Cape Town, South Africa. 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.

We don't…

have different tracks, groups, special VIP content. We don’t sit you down to listen to stale presentation after presentation about our product or features. You can find all that already in our GitLab Handbook.

We do…

want you to contribute to the topics of our workshops and User Generated Content sessions during this week, which have ranged from discussing working remotely in an effective way, to pitching new features, to how to handle burnout.

We'll do something unique…

We want to bring all our community and customers together and then leave the room. We’ll give you time to truly hear how people work with our product, what is worth exploring and what is just a waste of time. Without us there, just honestly shared experiences.
