Gather round, friends, it's story time. We recently [got together in Cape Town for our company summit](/2018/09/14/gitlab-summit-cape-town-recap/), where, in between bonding and enjoying the local sights, we spent some time reflecting.
Head of Product [Mark Pundsack](/team/#MarkPundsack) shared some of the GitLab journey: from our roots as an "ugly, open source knock-off of GitHub" to integrating [CI/CD](/features/gitlab-ci-cd/), building out our [version control](https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/workflow/gitlab_flow.html) capabilities, delivering a much improved user experience and design, all the way to [Concurrent DevOps](/2018/02/26/gitlabs-2018-product-vision/).
There's also a glimpse of where we're heading – for more details you can check out our post on [GitLab's product vision for 2019 and beyond](/2018/10/01/gitlab-product-vision/). Now get comfy, it's time for the back story:
