Announcing Q1 2022 GitLab Hackathon, February 22-24

:wave: Hello everyone!

The next GitLab hackathon will take place between the 22nd and 24th of February. An important reminder that the start and end date of the Hackathon is based on your time zone.

Contributors need to submit their MR during the timeframe of the hackathon.

Here is what you need to know:

  • We are introducing 5 contribution areas for making it easier for everyone to contribute: Website, Security, Front-end, Back-end, Documentation.
  • We have hand-picked a number of issues per each contribution area. Participants are encouraged to explore the issues available prior the Hackathon.
  • Prizes will be decided based on the points gathered on each contribution area.
  • Points are calculated based on whether an MR is contributing/closing an existing issue/epic.
  • New prizes will be introduced on the 10th of February.

You can find all the necessary details on the Hackathon’s page.

We are looking forward to seeing you all on February 21nd at 12 pm UTC for our kick-off call.

Please keep an eye on this post for updates and news.
Happy contributing!
