February 2021 Heroes Update
Hey everyone! I am thrilled to introduce GitLab's new Evangelist Program Manager, @jrachel1. Over the coming days and weeks, Jamie will be taking the lead of the GitLab Heroes program in collaboration with the steering committee. Jamie will also be leading our Meetups program. I'll be working closely with Jamie so you're not getting rid of me yet.
I know Jamie is hoping to meet as many Heroes and meetup organizers as she can so please keep an eye out for invitations from her to have a coffee chat.
Heroes Summit Recap
We hosted our first GitLab Heroes Summit on January 21, 2020. The event by all measures was a success. Thanks to our planning committee, speakers, and participants. The event could not have happened without everyone's contributions.
I'm happy to share that I finally uploaded the videos to YouTube. They can be found on the Heroes Summit playlist on the GitLab Unfiltered channel.
Here's a quick summary of stats from the event:
|Average Time Spent (mins)||126.5|
|Average User Rating||9.0|
