From the beginning, GitLab has been an open source project and we want to continue growing community code contribution.

A GitLab contributor room is available on Gitter for people interested in contributing to GitLab. This is open to everyone to join and is a good place for community members to network and help each other.
Community events are taking place regularly to support our thriving community of contributors and drive contributions. All of the events are posted on our meetup group.
We want to recognize amazing contributions from the wider community with GitLab swags. All GitLab team members and members of the wider community are encouraged to nominate others or themselves (for campaigns such as #myfirstMRmerge - having their first MR merged). Please refer to the nomination criteria and form for more details.
