Welcome to the third and last week of GrafanaCONline! We hope you’re able to check out all of our great online sessions.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch yesterday’s sessions (or want to see them again), here’s a roundup of day 8 of the conference:

Grafana plugins

With the release of Grafana v7.0, the team introduced a new plugins platform for developers so they can build high-quality custom plugins exponentially faster. Grafana Labs software engineer Dominik Prokop walked through the new packages (@grafana/ui, @grafana/data, @grafana/runtime, and @grafana/toolkit) and presented a demo of the new declarative options API.
