Monthly Snap May: OSMC 2018 CfP, product updates & user stories

Icinga turned 9 in May, we’re kicking off our 10th year of spreading the #icingalove ❤️

OSMC 2018 Call for Papers is officially open and we are looking forward to hear your Icinga stories this year. Did you dive through distributed setups, automated everything and combined the metrics of many tools into your stack? That’s a hell of a ride, and other community members will certainly listen and learn from your expertise :) Did you hack your own modules, themes and addons and want to share it with more than 250 other monitoring enthusiasts – write an abstract, choose a fancy title, hit “Submit” and see you in Nuremberg from November 5th to 8th, 2018.

The first Icinga meetup in Berlin was pretty much a blast, and community members enjoyed it a lot. Let’s hope to see more meetups in the future – if you need help with promotion or swag, just let us know.

Icinga Camp Berlin and New York were a blast – thank you everyone for joining! The archive for both is now online including slides and recordings. Marianne shared her impressions and Marco did so too :)

We’ve also had the pleasure to join the 2nd Icinga meetup in Zurich. Oh what a lovely community … we’ll sure be back for more #icingalove ❤️

We’re already planning for Berlin 2019 and would love to see your talks on how you use Icinga, integrations, cool new ideas, or just the crazy things no-one expects … did I say LSD theme? Want your own Icinga meetup in your hometown? Just get in touch, we’ll help you organise and can provide some swag too.
