For the first time ever, GitLab’s annual user conference will take place in a virtual environment on Aug. 26, bringing together DevOps luminaries from around the globe for a free, interactive learning experience.
GitLab Commit Virtual is a 24-hour virtual event that provides attendees with the opportunity to join DevOps discussions, demos and presentations, and network with thought leaders from the industry’s top companies, such as Microsoft, Google, Hubspot, Forrester and many more.
