Zabbix Conference 2012
Zabbix Conference 2012
October 1, 2012
157 delegates from 27 countries attended Zabbix Conference 2012 last weekend. Professionals from various industries: IT, telecommunications, advertising, finance, as well as healthcare, public and government sectors, gathered to share the knowledge and new ideas about Zabbix Monitoring Solution.
The conference was sponsored by some world-famous companies, without the help of which it would not have been possible. Red Hat Enterprise was a Gold Sponsor of the event and 4 companies from Japan: Miracle Linux, NTT Communications, SRA OSS, Inc. and TIS, - became Bronze Sponsors.
The official agenda had quite a tight schedule, with over 16 speakers presenting, discussing the ideas to improve the software and the various ways that it could be used. Some of the presenters introduced their projects that are Zabbix based and some speakers talked through some Zabbix-related case studies in their company. Many delegates were visiting the conference for the second time, so some of the presentation topics were a follow-up on the subjects highlighted by them at the previous year’s event.
Zabbix believes that hard work should pay off. That's why Zabbix Conference 2012 was complemented with some fun-stuff events. Delegates were competing for the best bowler and singer during the Welcome Party at Islande Hotel Bowling Club, getting to know Riga at a morning bus tour around the Old Town, striking out some conference jubilee coins at Zabbix Party, and finally getting to know Latvian history on their evening trip to Sigulda.
Feedback from Delegates
