Everyone can contribute! Learn DevOps and Cloud Native in our cafe ☕

Technology is moving fast in the DevOps and Cloud Native community.

Join the conversation and add your thoughts, tips, experiences, stories.

"Everyone Can Contribute" is inspired by GitLab's mission.


Technology is moving fast, and often we want to try things but lack the time to. Best practices and learnings need discussion, or a live debugging session in a cosy coffee chat.

This idea formed the #EveryoneCanContribute cafe, 1 hour social chat with a topic or theme. From “What did you learn recently” to project showcases and learning (debugging) together. Often community members and thought leaders join and share insights and discuss fresh ideas in the group.

Events are organized in our meetup group and are shown in the event calendar. The meetups are hosted by Michael Friedrich, Senior Developer Evangelist at GitLab. Check our Handbook for more insights.
