Thank you, @nmeisenzahl and @adrianmoisey_gitlab! We had a really great turnout - 45 people attended - and lots of great engagement from the community. Special thanks to Nico for fielding some tough questions gracefully. :smile:
That was a great way for to wrap up the first half of the year. I'm off on holiday through July 13. Gitter, Slack, and my GitLab account will all be deleted from my phone and my wife is going to hide my laptop. I'll be back in touch with everyone when I return.

Hello everyone, I saw this comment from April:

I see that zoom does breakout rooms, I never knew that: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206476093-Getting-Started-with-Breakout-Rooms

We've been using breakout rooms for online CI/CD and other classes since March and found them to be very helpful for class engagement . For splitting up the main class into smaller groups for lab exercises, it seems to promote quality of interaction, pairing and mobbing.

Anyone know of opensource alternative with breakout feature?

Any other tips for GitLab and related online events to make them engaging (and/or recruiting good attendance) I'd love to hear, thanks!

@johncoghlan_gitlab @adrianmoisey_gitlab just an idea related to our hero coffee chat discussion: what do you think about giving each week an overall topics and somehow repeat them? dev topics, Ops stuff, cloud-native, Community (how to become a hero, how to submit contribution, ...), ... This maybe would help the attendees to better decide when to join. And then stay agenda-less in the actual call.

Anyone have questions that would like to ask GitLab CEO Sid? We're doing an AMA as part of Commit today and I might be able to add a few more questions to the list.

Would anyone be interested in speaking at a GitLab x Hashicorp Meetup (put on by the London GitLab Meetup group but accessible to anyone) in October?
Great opportunity for first-time speakers but, of course, experienced speakers welcome.

Folks on our team are excited running GDK in Gitpod thanks to a recently merged integration. Reminds me of our conversation from Commit in SF earlier this year, @nmeisenzahl. More details in the issue: gitlab-org/gitlab-development-kit#1076

Thanks to the GitLab Heroes Steering Committee for a great meeting this morning. That was our most productive call in a while. Thanks to @adrianmoisey_gitlab @nmeisenzahl @nuwe1_gitlab @VladimirAus and @itssadon_gitlab.

I intend to share an update with the wider Heroes community shortly (as soon as Adrian sends me my birthday gift :wink: ). The tl;dr is that we have updates on the virtual Heroes Summit agenda and timing, a survey re: GitLab Heroes coffee chats, and a reminder about the Q3 OKR for Heroes.

FYI, the Heros Application link on this page is broken: https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/marketing/community-relations/evangelist-program/#gitlab-heroes-application-process

I was going to fix it, but when I forked the repo it's too large and won't allow me to make changes (see the #contributors) channel
