timeShift(GrafanaBuzz, 1w) Issue 21
This week the Stockholm team was in Malmö, Sweden for Øredev – one of the biggest developer conferences in Scandinavia, while the rest of Grafana Labs had to live vicariously through Twitter posts. We also announced a collaboration with Microsoft's Azure team to create an official Azure data source plugin for Grafana. We've also announced the next block of speakers at GrafanaCon. Awesome week!

From the Blogosphere
Grafana Launches Microsoft Azure Data Source: In this article, Grafana Labs co-founder and CEO Raj, Dutt talks about the new Azure data source for Grafana, the collaboration between teams, and how much he admires Microsoft’s embrace of open source software.
Monitor Azure Services and Applications Using Grafana: Continuing the theme of Microsoft Azure, the Azure team published an article about the collaboration and resulting plugin. Ashwin discusses what prompted the project and shares some links to dive in deeper into how to get up and running.
Monitoring for Everyone: It only took 1 day for the organizers of Oredev Conference to start publishing videos of the talks. Bravo! Carl Bergquist’s talk is a great overview of the whys, what’s, and how’s of monitoring.
Eight years of Go: This article is in honor of Go celebrating 8 years, and discusses the growth and popularity of the language. We are thrilled to be in such good company in the “Go’s impact in open source” section. Congrats, and we wish you many more years of success!
A DIY Dashboard with Grafana: Christoph wanted to experiment with how to feed time series from his own code into a Grafana dashboard. He wrote a proof of concept called grada to connect any Go code to a Grafana dashboard panel.
Visualize Time-Series Data with Open Source Grafana and InfluxDB: Our own Carl Bergquist co-authored an article with Gunnar Aasen from InfluxData on using Grafana with InfluxDB. This is a follow up to a webinar the two participated in earlier in the year.

11.15.17 | 1PM EST - Why observability matters—now and in the future
Carl Bergquist | In an ideal world application development teams have complete observability of their services running on Kubernetes. The perfect dashboard lets you spot trends, quickly increases your understanding and validation of your system and suggests solutions for mitigating problems. Sounds too good to be true?
Join Carl Bergquist, Principal Engineer at Grafana and Neil Gehani, Director of Product at Weaveworks to discover best practices on how to get started with monitoring both your application and infrastructure.
