Everyone can contribute! Let's learn together in a weekly cafe ☕


We love to break things, make mistakes, debug, analyse, fix problems together. Live and unfiltered on Youtube.

Community members and thought leaders regularly join and share their projects and ideas.

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