Invites sent to @itssadon_gitlab @jsmanrique_gitlab @nmeisenzahl for a 1PM UTC Heroes Hangout on Monday. Ping me if that time is a problem and I'll try to move it around.

Hello everyone :wave: I just wanted to let you know that we just had an amazing Hero spotlight interview with one of our fellow Hero Carlos Eduardo Arango :tada: . I would also like to thank @johncoghlan_gitlab for his participation in the meeting. Finally, I would like to invite anyone who would love to share their journey as Hero to ping me for an interview or just comment on this issue https://gitlab.com/gitlab-com/marketing/community-relations/gitlab-heroes/-/issues/55#note_301866056

We just scheduled a remote meetup with @nmeisenzahl on April 7 at 4pm UTC. I'm also working to plan a meetup at an APAC friendly time with @VladimirAus in the coming days/weeks. Stay tuned for reminders and more details. If you'd like to speak at a GitLab meetup or organize a GitLab meetup for your local community/time zone - please let me know! Happy to help you get something scheduled.

Is there a meetup.com page or something similar?
Nico Meisenzahl
@nmeisenzahl
I don’t think so. John is working on a Zoom registration page.
But I like the idea. What do you think @johncoghlan_gitlab
Adrian Moisey
@adrianmoisey_gitlab
Who is the intended audience? How is this marketed?
Somehow I missed the last one too, is there a central place where these are organised?
VladimirAus
@VladimirAus
It was sent through number of sources including https://www.meetup.com/pro/gitlab/
Adrian Moisey
@adrianmoisey_gitlab
Ah right
So it's specific to a particular meetup group then?
VladimirAus
@VladimirAus
This is more like an umbrella for all gitlab meetups on meetup.com
But it was also advertised by gitlab on twitter and linkedIn.
Adrian Moisey
@adrianmoisey_gitlab
yeah, and I assume the previous online meetup was hosted by one of those specific meetup groups?
VladimirAus
@VladimirAus
I'm part of "Gitlab Brisbane" (https://www.meetup.com/Brisbane-GitLab-Meetup/) and I received this message. I think all groups received this message.
Adrian Moisey
@adrianmoisey_gitlab
I'm guessing that's why I missed it
Nico Meisenzahl
@nmeisenzahl
I saw there first one on Twitter. I don’t think there is any kind of overview page yet.

Adrian Moisey
@adrianmoisey_gitlab
Yeah, if it's on twitter I'm likely to miss it

Re: the meetups - right now we are using Zoom registration pages for the meetups. For the first meetup, the registration link was shared via social media and a Meetup message to all members of GitLab meetup groups. Following Meetup.com's announcement that they have released a feature for online events, we will also invite our GitLab Meetup organizers to create event pages for these remote meetups going forward.
The previous online meetup was organized by GitLab, not tied to a group. Meetup Groups are still tied to a location so a "global" meetup group is imperfect but perhaps worth further consideration.
We will continue to evaluate our options for remote meetups but I wanted to get moving with the tools we have and iterate from there.

Awesome! Thanks for the clarity. Will try lookout for them (like above)
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
John Coghlan
@johncoghlan_gitlab
@adrianmoisey_gitlab We tried them last time with varying success across the rooms. Plan to improve for future iterations.
We just published the first GitLab Heroes Spotlight featuring @raju249_gitlab being interviewed by @nuwe1_gitlab. Take a look: https://youtu.be/a46rqD7Jq9M
