@johncoghlan_gitlab : I'm planning to submit call for papers for about 10 Australia / New Zealand conferences for 2020-2021. So I have few questions:
  • Do you want the list of conferences created as separate tasks / single task/ submitted via email / don't want the list at all?
  • Is there a chance to get merchandise to share during the conference/ after talks (at least stickers)?
  • Is gitlab interested in sponsoring any conferences in Aus/NZ region?

Hi everyone!
John Coghlan
@johncoghlan_gitlab
@VladimirAus That is awesome that you plan to submit to so many events. Thanks for sharing! To answer your questions:
  • You can include all the CFPs that are relevant to GitLab within a single issue. As the submissions are accepted, we can open up unique issues for each talk.
  • Happy to send some stickers your way. Check your inbox.
  • Peter Huynh, our APAC Field Marketing Manager, is the directly responsible individual for conference sponsorships in the Aus/NZ region. You can see many of the events that GitLab will sponsor on this issue board: https://gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-com/marketing/-/boards/933488?label_name[]=APAC. If you have questions or feedback about a particular event, let me know and I'll be happy to point you directly to the issue so you can collaborate with Pete.

@nmeisenzahl I put in for the same. :beers:
@itssadon_gitlab Have not missed much. We were waiting for you to get the party started. :smile: :tada:
@VladimirAus happy to help! Let me know if you need support from our technical evangelism team with the CFPs or any talks that are accepted.

@VladimirAus
@johncoghlan_gitlab will do. Most of the conferences are in Q3 and Q4 here so I will be creating more issues once CFPs are open and anyone wants to talk at the events.

@itssadon_gitlab
@johncoghlan_gitlab very well then… let get the party started. :beers: for everyone :laughing:

Hi. Sorry I need to skip our committee call today. I‘m at a customer atm. Please let me know in case you need any kind of feedback/input. Sorry 🙂

@johncoghlan_gitlab
We're going to reschedule the committee call due to scheduling conflicts. Hopefully a few more folks are available next week.

I'm wittling away at this issue during weekends:
gitlab-com/marketing/community-relations/gitlab-heroes#45

Currently working on a script - I'll post it soon.

It would be good to meet up if you are not too busy :).

@johncoghlan_gitlab
@adrianmoisey_gitlab any interest in speaking at the Atlanta GitLab meetup while you're there? :)

@johncoghlan_gitlab You mentioned D&I on the call today. Coincidentally, I think I found a potential D&I issue in a change slated for GitLab: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/issues/207495#note_298077604

I think this impacts heros too - the change would make it harder to contribute.

John Coghlan
@johncoghlan_gitlab
Thanks for calling that out and your comments on the issue, @jamestharpe_gitlab. I'm going to take a deeper look into this. If other Heroes and community members have any thoughts, please comment.

@VladimirAus
happy to help @nuwe1_gitlab
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
@raju249_gitlab We can have our first session this week and since you are our first speaker I guess you can choose a day when you are most comfortable to do the interview where you will be sharing your awesome journey as a hero Yay :tada: #soExcited

@raju249_gitlab
It is a public holiday tomorrow here in India, So I will be at home. We can do it tomorrow if you have time.
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
@VladimirAus Yeah sure. I haven't yet finalized on like the interview dialogue so am guessing you could pitch in for this :slight_smile:
Rajendra kadam
@raju249_gitlab
Yes, we can have some questions for the interviewee so that any person watching it can follow maybe?
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
@raju249_gitlab I think tomorrow would be too soon. How about on Wednesday or Thursday just so that we get the questions ready.
Rajendra kadam
@raju249_gitlab
Lets do it on Saturday then? I might find it difficult to squeeze time on Wed, Thurs and Friday.
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
Saturday is favorable for me but I am not sure @johncoghlan_gitlab and maybe some other people who would like to attend the call will be able to make it then.
John Coghlan
@johncoghlan_gitlab
No need to schedule around me. Find a time that works best for you two and I'll join if I am able.
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
@raju249_gitlab I think we can schedule a time on Saturday then :slight_smile: .
Rajendra kadam
@raju249_gitlab
Awesome
Let move this chat to DM.
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
Sure
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
I am pleased to announce that we will be having a video session where @raju249_gitlab will be sharing his journey as Hero this Saturday at 09:30 UTC :tada: :balloon: so anyone interested feel free to join in on the call or you can share your thoughts for what you would love to hear him talk about.
Rajendra kadam
@raju249_gitlab
We can also let folks in contributors channel know this since we have everyone there, we have heroes in this channel already :sweat_smile:
Folks in contributors might find this more useful than us.
KAREGYEYA MARVIN
@nuwe1_gitlab
Yeah sure that sounds like a great idea :slight_smile:

Does anyone know what software GitLab uses to conduct remote interviews?
