Livestream: What’s next for GitLab?

Join us for a special #GitLabLive event

Two years ago we held our very first #GitLabLive event where we unveiled our master plan to build a complete toolset for developers, from idea to production. Since then, we’ve not only delivered on that vision, but expanded our product to include the entire DevOps lifecycle. We’ve seamlessly integrated each step, so dev and ops teams can plan, create, verify, package, release, configure, monitor, and secure software within a single application.

But we’re not stopping there.

Our mission is to make it easy for everyone to contribute. That’s why we want to include security, designers, project managers, and executives as first class citizens in our product. With all stakeholders working from the same interface, sharing the same data-store, teams can work concurrently, eliminating the need for handoffs, and unleashing the power of better collaboration to drive results faster.

Join us for a special live event to find out what’s next for GitLab and how we’re going to get there. Plus, a few surprises that we can’t wait to share!

What to expect:

  • Welcome
  • Company update
  • Scaling a remote culture
  • Special guests
  • Product update & vision
  • Q&A


Sid Sijbrandij

CEO, GitLab

Sid saw the first ruby code in 2007 and loved it so much he learned to program and made this his profession. Before that he was engaged in various businesses, from selling programmable infrared receivers to starting a recreational submarine company. He is always looking to publicly document an answer or to make a process more efficient. He was never good at sports but tries to make it up in quantity by hiking, sailing, skiing, snowboarding, speed skating, dancing Zouk, squashing, and running. He loves participating in conversations on Hacker News, and reading Marc Andreessen's tweets (now that Marc stopped this greatly increased his productivity).

Barbie Brewer

Chief Culture Officer, GitLab

Before joining GitLab in September 2017, Barbie worked as a consultant for tech companies internationally, after spending 6 years as Netflix's VP of Talent. Barbie loves helping companies build amazing cultures and workplaces that are 100% aligned to the success of the business and is excited to give her full attention to GitLab. Barbie is also an avid reader who also enjoys SCUBA, Golf, and cooking. She spends most of her weekends watching her kids play sports or heading to the beach, as she has recently taken up surfing. Barbie is very excited about the products that GitLab offers and the unique culture and workforce. Having lived in three countries and traveled the planet in previous roles, the idea of a remote workforce is thrilling to her. Barbie believes that if GitLab can continue to build an amazing product with a remote workforce, the learnings can be transferred to others. Successful remote workforces strengthen individuals, families, and communities. Barbie also hopes that a remote workforce will expand the opportunity to have a diverse set of candidates and employees.

Mark Pundsack

Head of Product, GitLab

Originally a computer engineer doing speech recognition research, he moved to product management about 20 years ago. Over the past six years, Mark has developed a passion for developer experience. Before GitLab, Mark was at CircleCI as VP of Product, and before that, at Heroku focusing on continuous delivery and the Heroku-GitHub integration. Outside of work he builds Star Wars Lego with his 6-year-old son and dresses up his 3-year-old daughter as a princess. A recent transplant to Chicagoland from California, you'll often see him bundled up in a winter coat for no reason at all.

Manager, Product Marketing, Ops

William is a technical marketer who’s been crafting both code and copy since the late 90’s. Prior to joining GitLab, William worked in product marketing at Twilio and Digium. Outside of work, you can find William cooking, skateboarding, and playing video games with his wife and three children.
