Introducing the GitKraken Ambassadors

Welcoming Community Members from Across the Globe

At Axosoft, one of our primary goals is to educate developers around the world about the power of using Git with GitKraken. We can’t be everywhere all the time though, and we don’t know your local tech communities like you do. So, we recently launched the GitKraken Ambassador Program in order to work more closely with professional and student developers globally to teach devs how to be more productive using our tools. We received hundreds of applications from 60 countries, including Azerbaijan to Cuba and beyond.

After carefully evaluating each application, we are proud to welcome our first group of 71 ambassadors from 31 countries including: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cyprus, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Latvia, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Nigeria, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland, Turkey, Thailand, the United States, and Zambia.

These individuals are passionate about learning, teaching and engaging with their local tech communities. Let’s meet a few! 🤝
