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!
