We had a scheduling issue with round 1 and a few folks missed it so we'll be hosting another version of our "How to get selected to speak at GitLab Commit" meetup on May 28.


GitLab Commit brings together the GitLab community to connect, learn, and inspire. We're excited to announce that our summer 2020 Commit conference will be fully virtual! Save the date for Wednesday August 26, 2020 to join us for Virtual GitLab Commit.

The call for proposals (CFP) for GitLab Commit is now open. We are looking for great speakers (no experience necessary) to share their stories with our community.

We're hosting a meetup to help folks, particularly first-timers, prepare their submissions for the CFP. Members of our Commit team will be at the meetup to share information about the events, talk about what we're looking for in a proposal, and break down a winning submission.

We hope you'll join us for the meetup (and submit a proposal, too)!


11:30AM PT - Intro
11:35AM PT - Abubakar Siddiq Ango will break down a well-written submission.
