The GitLab.tv Events Channel will act as an educational platform that highlights and supports GitLab's live and virtual events. Our audience of tech managers and leaders from a variety of industries will find informative content including demos, keynotes, and interviews on the GitLab events channel.
Ultimately, the GitLab.tv Events Channel will promote brand awareness and thought leadership as well as offer educational opportunities for our audience of developers, engineers and those looking to get started with DevOps and/or GitLab.
These goals are measured as traffic from YouTube to key Event pages, as outlined below in the
Content Types and Guidelines section.
GitLab.tv Events Channel allows the wider GitLab community as well as individuals and companies from all industries interested in DevOps and/or GitLab to engage with the company's outward-facing virtual and live events, webinars as well as thought leadership content in the area of DevOps. The audience for this channel consists of a wide range of individuals from individual developers and full-time engineers to managers and tech stakeholders. For the purposes of this channel, we split the audience into two main groups:
Regular GitLab users: This segment of the audience is the most likely to binge on this channel's event and thought leadership content because they are already engaged and locked into the GitLab community.
People who are looking to get started with DevOps and/or GitLab: This segment of the audience is either interested in GitLab as a corporate or individual user, but may not have interfaced with the tool just yet. They may also be doing research on DevOps, and found GitLab along the way. Webinars and instructional event content may be of most interest to these folks as the channel will likely be more of an educational outlet for this segment of the audience.
To keep the Events Channel focused on its intended audience, please adhere to the following content guidelines and content types. Specifically, we are looking for content that highlights:
