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.


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. This can be a new project, an introduction into a new OSS startup or learning a new technology or programming language together. First pitched idea wins - often community members and thought leaders join and share insights and discuss fresh ideas in the group.

Join us weekly on Wednesday (except holidays), a topic forecast is available in the event calendar. The sessions are hosted by Michael Friedrich, Developer Evangelist at GitLab in Zoom and streamted to YouTube. Check our Handbook for more insights.
