Welcome to TimeShift
This week’s timeShift will be abridged, as we’re busy putting the final touches on GrafanaCon EU. As I write this, we have 3 Angel tickets remaining, surpassing a registered 350 attendees. 100% of proceeds from these angel tickets will go to the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation), a nonprofit who defends the rights of our digital privacy and free speech; a cause we’re very passionate about. You can snag these last tickets here. We’re all extremely humbled by the excitement around the conference and are looking forward to 2 great days of talks focused on Grafana and the open source monitoring community! Hope to see you in Amsterdam!
Note: Due to GrafanaCon, traveling, and taking a much needed couple days off, this will be the last timeShift for two weeks - see you again March 16!
