This post contains the links to my GitLab Commit Brooklyn session “Never Hire a Butler to do a Robot’s Job” as well as an interview I had with Alan Shimel at GitLab Commit.
I’ve spoken at a lot of conferences and I’ve experienced a good number of the many ways that conferences can fail to deliver.
GitLab Commit had three major things working against it that made me wonder what the experience would be like. First of all it was a first time conference for GitLab. Secondarily it was only one day. In my experience, many one day conferences are thinly veiled marketing events with shallow, slapped together sessions. And finally, session slots were 30 minutes - unless it is a 5 minute lightning session, I’ve never seen a session length that short.
My expectations weren’t high, but I was delighted to be wrong on all counts…
Pssst: You can still catch GitLab Commit in London on October 9th or San Franciso on January 14th.
