About GitLab Meetups
GitLab은 20개 이상의 국가에서 1만 명이 넘는 회원들로 활기찬 글로벌 meetup community를 가지고 있습니다. GitLab 미팅은 커뮤니티 구성원, 커뮤니티 그룹 또는 GitLab 팀원들이 함께 모여 네트워크를 형성하고 아이디어를 공유하고 DevOps의 다양한 주제에 대해 자세히 알아볼 수 있는 이벤트입니다. 일반적으로 연사와 일부 Q&A가 있어 참석자들 간의 상호작용을 위한 충분한 시간을 갖습니다. 대부분의 이전 미팅에는 사람들이 직접 만났으나, 우리는 최근에 가상 미팅 진행을 시작했습니다! 가상 미팅이 더 효율적이고, 더 협력적이며, 더 다양하고 포괄적일 수 있기 때문에 우리 GitLab 팀은 가상 미팅을 좋아합니다.
GitLab for Education
The GitLab for Education Program, one of several programs run by the Community Relations team, is where we foster the adoption of GitLab at educational institutions ranging from primary school up through Universities by providing free licenses of GitLab Gold or Ulitmate for the purposes of teaching, learning, or research to qualifying educational institutions. We are thrilled with the success thus far – we’ve issued 1.486 million seats to 800 institutions in 65 countries around the world – and we’re excited to build on this organic interest and take the program to the next level.
As we look forward to expanding our GitLab for Education Program in 2020, our primary goal is to foster a vibrant community for building relationships and sharing knowledge for all things related to education and DevOps. In this spirit, we’re excited to announce our first-ever Education Program Virtual Meetup. We invite anyone who is interested to join us – you do not need to be a current Education Program member to attend. Our focus on the Community Relations team has been to create a community where everyone can contribute and we are thrilled to extend these efforts into growing the education community.
Here is an overview of what we’ll cover:
Introduction to our Team Members and overview of the GitLab for Education Program
We’ll start by introducing a few of our team members, John Coghlan our Senior Evangelist Program Manager, and Christina Hupy our Senior Education Program Manager. John runs our GitLab Meetup and GitLab Heroes programs. Next, we’ll introduce Christina (that’s me!), who runs our GitLab for Education Program, and a few our Community Advocates. Then we’ll highlight a few key points about the GitLab for Education Program such as the types of licenses we offer, how your institution can sign up for them, and how you can contribute directly by engaging with us on issues on GitLab itself. We’ll answer any questions you might have about the program.
We’ll touch on a broad range of topics including:
- Use Cases
- How is your institution using GitLab? We’d love to learn more about how your institution is using GitLab or how you are thinking about using GitLab if you are not yet signed up.
- What are your biggest challenges in growing adoption of DevOps on your campus? Share ideas with us on what challenges you face while implementing and growing adoption of GitLab at your institution.
- What kinds of resources have been and would be most useful to you while using GitLab at your institution? What organizations have been you been involved with? As we continue to grow the Education Program, providing resources to our education community is a top priority. We’d love to hear from you on what would help you be successful.
Why join us?
This is a great opportunity to grow your network in education whether you are a student learning DevOps or a faculty or staff looking to share best practices for implementation on campus. Meetups are also a great way to increase your skillset by learning more about DevOps and GitLab alike. They are great forums for sharing ideas that could inspire you in your everyday workflows.
We hope you’ll consider joining us. We are super excited to connect with all of you! Please feel free to share the invite to anyone who may be interested in learning more.
