OSMC – Stay tuned – Hackathon

OSMC 2017 | The worldwide leading conference on open source monitoring solutions
November 21 to 24 | Nuremberg

In part 3 of the Blopgseries “OSMC – Stay tuned” we want to give you a short overview of the OSMC Hackathon on November 24:

We will start the day with a short round of introductions, then run a brainstorming session for possible topics. Afterwards the participants have the opportunity to form groups and work together on a specific solution. Most important however, is that no development orders are placed but rather a real implementation is elaborated.

What makes the OSMC unique?
The bilingual conference focuses on the latest trends and developments on open source monitoring solutions and offers a unique opportunity to meet the open source community and to gain valuable expertise. The conference offers Interesting talks with a real benefit for the attendees, as well as hands-on workshops to expand your knowledge and monitoring know- how.
Due to the great success in the past two years, we are again offering a hackathon, which is bookable as an add-on.

We’re very excited and would be happy to welcome you in November!

And now, have a look at “Alerting with Time Series” by Fabian Reinartz!


Open Source Monitoring Conference – Da ist das Ding!

und mit Ding meine ich keinen Pokal, obwohl die OSMC den ja wohl sicherlich auch verdient hätte, sondern das prall gefüllte, brandaktuelle Programm! Größer als je zuvor! Wir haben gleich so viele Papers von euch bekommen, dass wir kurzerhand dazu entschieden haben, noch einen Slot hinzuzufügen. Freut euch auf sage und schreibe 30(!!!) Knaller-Vorträge.
Mit dabei sind unter anderem diese Garanten für einen Spitzentalk:
Alba Ferri Fitó (Vodafone) | With a little help from … the community
Caleb Hailey (Sensu) | Monitoring Challenges in a World of Automation

Auch gibt es wieder die Qual der Wahl bei den Workshops:
