What’s next

How do I get started with contributing?

An excellent place to start is our new Contributing to GitLab page, where you can learn how to contribute GitLab code, documentation, translation, engagement, and UX design.

Hackathon prizes

Following the point system, we calculated each contributor’s points for each contribution area based on whether their MRs contributed to the issues highlighted on the Hackathon’s page.
