Raj took us on a walk down memory lane as he told the history of Grafana Labs (and GrafanaCon) up to now and highlighted some cool dashboards from the community. Tom covered developments around the Grafana Cloud metrics and logging SaaS platform, including Loki, Cortex, Metrictank, Grafana Agent, and worldPing. And Torkel offered the story of the Grafana project from his first tweet about it on Jan. 1, 2014, to some teasers about the upcoming 7.0 release.
