How to ship your feature with Geo support and why it matters
Limited Capacity seats available

Workshop issue

Geo allows distributed teams across the world to use GitLab at speed. Geo provides read-only Geo nodes close to users that they can pull data from. Geo nodes can also be used to failover in a Disaster Recovery scenario. Currently, many new features in GitLab ship without Geo support out of the box. We want to change this and make it easier for software developers to contribute! This is why the Geo team set out to build a scalable, self-service geo replication and verification framework. In this workshop we are going to show you how to use this framework and guide you through the steps to make your feature Geo-compatible. If you are building features that produce data - this workshop is for you :).
  • Intended Audience: GitLab software developers.

Pragmatic Web Performance
Limited Capacity seats available

Workshop issue​​​

There are a lot of different values, measurements, and significant times when it comes to web performance. However, most of those do not take into consideration your project, your architecture and your project's audience into consideration. Those are good generic starting points. However, fighting to get those values to some artificial number might take a lot of time and resources. At the end of the day, you might even find out that even lower generic numbers don't mean better performance of your project. In this workshop/talk, I will discuss the ways to measure what really matters for a product, page, and even a separate component. We will discuss and see examples of how to use those measurements for your benefits. Also, we will talk about perceived performance as another totally valid tool to manage performance of your projects. This workshop/lecture is about technology, but also about people and psychology.
  • Intended Audience: Developers, Engineering Managers
  • Mostly a presentation with practical examples
  • Bring your questions and ask them at the end for real-time responses! You can add them to this questions: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15L6y9Q2C0nI--WUdDx7kp7gIzZkeWo2YFdunij1xLH8/edit?usp=sharing

Documentation: basics and tips that make it easier
Limited Capacity seats available

Workshop issue

While GitLab has a growing technical writing team, the first drafts of docs are usually created by our wonderful engineers. Some engineers enjoy writing docs, some are nervous about it, some find it a chore, and some even hate it (and that's ok!). I (We?) will go over some basics (many of which are in our documentation guides, but are good to review), as well as give tips and recommendations. I hope this helps everyone be more comfortable with writing out the docs (or at least hate writing docs less). If time allows, I will also give a brief overview of how the docs go from markdown in the gitlab repo, to html on docs.gitlab.com.
