August 2020 Heroes Update
Reminder: please add your highlights of being a GitLab Hero, which we hope to include a blog post, to this issue.
GitLab Commit is coming up in just a few days! Make sure you register and don't miss our Stories from the Community keynote! I think you'll recognize some of the folks who share their stories.
The full schedule is on Sched but I wanted to highlight sessions from our current GitLab Heroes:
- My unexpected journey to become a GitLab Hero by @mattdark
- To go where no one has gone before by @m4r10k
- Your attackers won't be happy! by @nico-meisenzahl
- Remote Control: Helping Non-Engineering Teams To Achieve Faster Workflows by @bethan_vincent
- Achieving Workload Portability AND Remaining Compliant Using GitLab and Kubernetes by @fford
Thanks to everyone and I look forward to seeing you at Commit!
GitLab Heroes OKR
We kicked off a new OKR this quarter for the Heroes program. You can find more information in the associated epic.
The details are: * Objective: Increase and measure contributions from the GitLab Heroes
- KR: 30 MRs of recent contributions merged to the Recent Contributions page
- KR: Add KPI for Heroes contributions to GitLab Marketing KPI list
I look forward to working with you all to achieve this goal.
An update from me
I recently took a new role at GitLab as Manager, Developer Evangelism - leading both a team of developer evangelists as well as the community evangelism efforts. I'm excited for our internal developer evangelists to work more closely with our community and all of you.
As always, thanks for inspiring me and all the great work you do in the GitLab community!
