Crazy Wisdom

Jan 28, 2019

Just did an interview with the CEO of Gitlab, Sid Sibrandij.

Gitlab is a multibillion dollar company that helps developers become more efficient with less stress.

One of the most interesting values they have is that they are totally transparent. They post lots of their meetings and code reviews to youtube so that everyone can see. I was able to ask Sid pretty much anything about the company and he would answer.

This could be a source of stress because there is always this line between honesty and kindness. There is such a thing as being too honest and it can hurt people.

A really interesting side effect of their strategy of transparency and publishing everything online is they get a whole lot of business because people just find them. That's how I found them too!
