GrafanaCONline recap: Grafana 7.0, Prometheus deep dives, Loki future, electric cars, wine waste, and more

Published: 1 Jun 2020 RSS

GrafanaCONline wrapped up last Friday, and we were thrilled to have so many of you join the sessions over the past three weeks. Thank you for tuning in, asking questions, chatting on Slack, and generally making our reimagined conference a success.

A big thank you, too, to all the speakers and the Grafanistas behind the scenes who made the magic happen:

The end

If you didn’t get a chance to watch Friday’s sessions (or want to watch them again), here’s what you missed on day 11 of the conference:

Community and documentation

Grafana Labs Senior Technical Writer Diana Payton talked about the need for one source of truth – documentation. Competing sources cause confusion and are extra effort. But the great thing about open source is that our docs are your docs, so if something is wrong or missing, you can file an issue. If you see something that can be improved, you can file a PR and help fix it. The team appreciates any help you are willing to give, and future users with the same question will be grateful.
