Amsterdam, NL 4 - 5 September 2018 Compagnietheater

Join us in Amsterdam!

Long overdue but never forgotten, Monitorama is finally returning to Europe! Join us again to hear talks from industry experts and community leaders about the newest approaches in monitoring and observability. Find out which tools and techniques are in use at some of the largest web architectures in the world.

Why me?

Because you care about the tools that you work with. You love metrics, logs, tracing, and all things observability. Your team looks to you for the latest tools and trends in monitoring. Oh, and because you understand that #monitoringlove isn't just a catchy hashtag.

Amsterdam in September?

Amsterdam anytime. Autumn will be upon us with beautiful temperatures around 20c. One of the most diverse cities in the world, Amsterdam is a fantastic destination for this event.

I'm convinced. What now?

Go get your ticket while they last!

Call for Participation

Our call for participation is officially open. We're accepting proposals for 30-minute sessions to participate in our two-day, single-track agenda. As usual we'd love to hear about your failures and successes in production, new tools and methods. We will consider all topics but we have some themes of particular interest this year:

  • Container Visibility DIY - monitoring ephemeral systems without off-the-shelf agents
  • Automated Monitoring - herding (and instrumenting) your cats efficiently
  • Coordinated Observability - embracing the variety of monitoring tools (metrics, logs, events, and more) across a team or organization
  • The Head vs The Tail - distinguishing system-wide regressions versus isolated anomalies
  • Building Observability Teams - knowing when and how to build your own dedicated in-house team

You may submit as many proposals as you'd like. We're accepting submissions until 00:00 UTC 1 July, 2018. Proposals will be selected by 15 July, 2018 and submitters will be notified immediately thereafter. Speakers of 30-minute session talks will receive free registration to the event.

    Code of Conduct

    All delegates, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at any Monitorama event are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.

    The Quick Version

    Monitorama is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

    The Less Quick Version

    Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

    Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

    Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material.

    Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for Monitorama.

    If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

    If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff will be visible by their special badges and clothing.

    Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

    We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
