Our content mission is to create a shared space where modern developers and decisions makers find and share useful information, advice, resources, and inspiration for becoming better distributed and collaborative development teams.
For every piece of content we share the goal should be to make an individual or a team better. To achieve this we should empathize with our audience, thinking about who the content is for and how it will help. We should aim to share both the "how-to" and "the why it matters" in our content. We should strive to make takeaways clear and actionable.
GitLab is a classic oversharer of ideas, opinions, and experiences that help better the community. We think of GitLab's voice as human, empathetic, light-hearted, and opinionated yet humble. We share our point of view and opinions but do not forget to provide context and ask for other opinions.
Things you can expect GitLab to overshare on:
Community Guidance: Empowering developers to get stuff done by making it easy to get started with git and GitLab
Enterprise Answers: Working in large teams is often challenging. We'd like to understand more about the painpoints of enterprise development teams, present solutions, and answer questions.
Thought Leadership: Share our perspective on variety of topics like open source, open organization, innersourcing, modern development, and change management.
Quirky Culture: Showcase our unique company culture and team members, focusing on remote-only, transparency, product design, employee learnings, stickers etc.)
