June 24, 2019

"I look forward to every release and seeing the new features that I worked with the GitLab community together on," said George Tsiolis, UX Engineer. Core Team at GitLab." The 12.0 release is an important one as it shows how much GitLab has grown in a year. I really enjoy contributing to GitLab as I have the opportunity to work with some of the most brilliant engineers and designers that I know. Back when I started contributing, I didn't always feel confident about some contributions of mine but most of the times someone always jumped in and helped me get across the finish line. Last but not least, I find the code review process quite insightful no matter how big or small the contribution."
