OSMC 2021: The Agenda is set!

OSMC 2021 approaches more and more and we’re excited to announce that the conference program is now set. You can expect 2 days with a total of 30 lecture sessions by well-known open source experts. The 2021 edition o fthe event will sum up the current state of the art in open source monitoring and give you as a community member the chance to meet again since 2019. Doesn’t that sound great?

 

Get inspired…

… and check out these three folks to set the mood for OSMC!

 

PHILIPP KRENN – On the Bleeding Edge of Open Telemetry

Tracing and telemetry are popular topics right now, but the development is so quick that it also confuses:

Starting with OpenTracing, then W3C Trace-Context, and now OpenTelemetry there are plenty of standards, but what do or don’t they cover?

How do the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and its projects like Jaeger play into that.

Where is OpenTelemetry headed, and how can projects tie into it?

 

 

 

PETER ZAITSEV – Advanced MySQL optimization and roubleshooting using PMM 2

 

Optimizing MySQL performance and troubleshooting MySQL problems are two of the most critical and challenging tasks for MySQL DBA’s. The databases powering your applications need to be able to handle changing traffic workloads while remaining responsive and stable so that you can deliver an excellent user experience. Further, DBA’s are also expected to find cost-efficient means of solving these issues. In this presentation, we will demonstrate the advanced options of PMM version 2 that enables you to solve these challenges, which is built on free and open-source software.

 

 

 

TOBIAS BERDIN & STEPHAN SCHMIDT – Thola – A tool for monitoring and provisioning network devices

Thola is a new open source tool for reading, monitoring and provisioning network devices. We will inform about the current state of development as well as planned features, including reading out inventory, configuring network devices, support for other monitoring systems and many more. It serves as a unified interface for communication with network devices and features a check mode which complies with the monitoring plugins development guidelines.

 

 

Now it’s your turn

Besides seeing the exact date, time and topic of each presentation you also have the option to add your favourite talks to your personal calendar. This way you can be sure to receive a reminder for your most preferred presentations. So what are you waiting for? Have a look at our agenda and select your personal highlights!

 

Workshop & Hackathon

If you want to dive even deeper into open source monitoring just register for this year’s Icinga Workshop or participate in the inspiring OSMC Hackathon following the presentation program on November 11.

 

What OSMC is all about

The Open Source Monitoring Conference is the annual meeting of international monitoring experts where future trends and perspectives are set. It’s a three-day event that comprises two tracks of expert sessions. On top there’s a hackathon and a workshop on the 3rd conference day. Since the tickets for attending the lecture program are already sold out – due to Corona current restrictions – you still have the possibility to register for the waitinglist. Workshop and Hackathon are still bookable.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in person this autumn on November 9 to 11, in Nuremberg!

New Speakers + How To Join The Sold Out OSMC 2021

This year is a little different compared to the years before – also kind of in a good way. Why? Here you go:

Something To Talk About

New Speaker Alert! We’ve added a bunch of new, confirmed speakers + their talks to the list, and more get added regularly – yay! If you’re curious who’s going to talk, check out the Speakers Line Up!
They all have either a 30-minute or 60-minute slot, which is one new thing this year.

 

Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

There is always something good in everything (bad), right? So, even though we’re sold out as of now – which is somehow great – that also means there aren’t enough tickets left for those wanting to get one. We would love to have more tickets at hand, however our health and safety are most important and we are therefore limited with the amount of people attending.

But (and here’s the but!), we have a waiting list that you can sign up for – in case we’re allowed to provide more tickets until November! Take a chance on us and join the list. That’s new thing #2.

 

We Can Work It Out

Those who have been at the Open Source Monitoring Conference before might remember: in the past years, an OSMC ticket was needed in order to attend the Hackathon and/or the OSMC Workshops.
Since this year is a little different and we’re open for change, we’ve made it possible to attend our famous Hackathon and Workshop without the need of having the general OSMC ticket! Meaning, you can book your Hackathon and Workshop ticket separately. I mean, no pressure, but the run on the tickets is high – FYI.

 

Tell Me More, Tell Me More

The Hackathon, as well as the Workshop, round up OSMC 2021 and both take place on November 11th at the NETWAYS HQ. At the Workshop – the post-conference training class –  you’ll learn a lot about
Icinga and notifications with AD-Integration
.
Collaborate, Code and Contribute to new Open Source Software Projects is the motto for Hackathon! It’s dedicated to nothing, but hacking!

 

So, we hope to have convinced you to get on the waiting list and get your Hackathon or Workshop ticket! See you around in November in Nuremberg! 🙂

How to rewind & relive stackconf online 2021

Just recently, we hosted the second online version of stackconf, and we’re still over the moon!

From June 15 – 17, 2021, not only the 31 high-level speakers from around the world made this year’s online edition extraordinary and absoulutely exciting. Especially the 414 registered attendees made stackconf online 2021 surely one to remember! Thank you for three wonderful days full of Open Source Infrastructure Love!
For me, it was my first time working at stackconf and I mean, what can I say: I love NETWAYS and the people! 🙂 How can you not?

Whether it’s this year’s talks or from previous years: take a walk down memory lane to rewind & relive all your favourite talks: reminisce by browsing through all the slides, speaker videos and conference photographs!

 

..or if we could make time pass faster

And you know: after the event is before the event! We‘re beyond excited that we’re going to see each other in person again next time! So, mark your calendars for stackconf 2022 in Berlin! For those, who can not wait until next year, I can warmly recommend OSMC – the Open Source Monitoring Conference – happening from November 09 – 11, 2021 – here in Nuremberg.

stackconf 2021: Behind the scenes

Meet the faces behind stackconf

stackconf online 2021 is over. It was successfull once again and we’re happy everything has been gone as planned. For this we would like to thank anyone who was involved in the organizational process of our online conference this year. In the following we give you an impression of how it looked like behind the scenes.

 

Our awesome moderators

If you were part of stackconf you certainly know these two faces. Christian and Bernd were moderating the conference for whole three days. They took care about making the required technology work, announcing all of our talks, entertaining the community during the breaks and interacting with participants and speakers via live chat. They did a great job the last few days and we hold them in high esteem for undertaking this demanding task.

 

A cake a day…

…keeps the stress away. At least on the first day, when everyone of our team was a little bit nervous whether everything is going as planned. For this Jessica from the Marketing Team has baked a stackconf cake with an edible logo on top of it. It was very delicious and especially refreshing at the high temperatures. The whole stackonf crew enjoyed the cake during one of our well-deserved breaks.

 

 

The organizers

Lukas and Markus are the core of stackconf. They’re working in the Events-team and have planned stackconf well in advance. During the conference they ensure that everything runs smoothly and that all involved are on track. Furthermore they checked if speakers are online for the Q&A session followed after their lecture and cared about sponsor and participant requests. Thank you for investing so much time in organizing stackconf!

 

 

Hardworking Marketingladies

Leonie, Natalie, Jessi and me have been supporting stackconf from marketing site. We are behind the twitter channel NETWAYS Events. Taking pictures, recording videos, publishing tweets and community management were our daily tasks. The cooperation within our Marketing team was perfect – it couldn´t have gone better!

 

    

 

And all together

We did it – and we’re pleased we did it great! Thanks to everyone for joining us, regardless of whether speaker, sponsor, participant or organizer.

We’re looking forward to meeting you personally at stackconf 2022 in Berlin.
