DINAcon Awards Nominee


Project Category: #3 Best Practice

We started in 2013 with GitLab, a Social Coding platform for our team, made code.siemens.com out of it on November 5th 2015 and scaled it up to over 29000 users in the whole of Siemens. Developer from > 68 countries are collaborating across internal and organisational boundaries day by day.
We are fully committed to Open Source and spend about 10 % of our budget for upstream contributions to GitLab and many other open source projects. The basic principle "for developers from developers" has been introduced at the very beginning and we established a global developer community across Siemens over the last years. Nowadays CI/CD is all over (> 1 Million jobs per month), we established best practices that are widely adopted and code.siemens.com became the default environment for developers within Siemens.


Why should this Project win a DINAcon Award?

Beside of providing a reliable service for all developers, we've established a global community that is helping each other and we kicked of a significant cultural change within Siemens
