GrafanaCON 2023: What to know before you go

GrafanaCON 2023: What to know before you go

9 Jun, 2023 3 min

With GrafanaCON 2023 right around the corner, it’s officially time for community members to start preparing for the event. And this year’s GrafanaCON, in particular, will be a busy one.

Taking place virtually from June 12 to June 14, the event will feature more than 30 live sessions covering everything from homelab projects and IoT monitoring to, of course, the next-generation features in Grafana 10, our latest major release. In addition to Grafana 10, the event will showcase recent updates to the full Grafana LGTM Stack (Loki for logs, Grafana for visualization, Tempo for traces, Mimir for metrics), and explore best practices related to other OSS projects, such as Grafana k6 for performance testing and Grafana Pyroscope for continuous profiling.

This year’s event is also a celebratory one, as Grafana Labs founders look back and reflect on 10 years of the Grafana OSS project.

To get in on all the action, be sure to register for GrafanaCON 2023 (it’s not too late!). Then, follow these tips to make the most out of the show. 

Elevate your Grafana dashboards with a free workshop

Looking to take your Grafana dashboards to the next level? Sign up for one of our free Extreme Dashboard Makeover workshops, running June 12 and June 13, to do just that.

Grafana Labs solutions engineers will share best practices for creating stunning and highly effective dashboards tailored to specific use cases. Attendees will learn how to choose the most impactful dashboard type, strategies for using visual hierarchies, accessibility best practices, and more. You can also participate in a live Q&A session with Grafana dashboarding experts.

These 90-minute workshops will be held in time zones for Europe and the Middle East, the Americas, and APAC. Sessions will be hosted on Zoom and require pre-registration to join.

The conference will officially kick off with the Opening Keynote on June 13 at 7:00 PDT/ 16:00 CEST/14:00 UTC. In addition to unveiling Grafana 10, Grafana Labs execs will crown the winners of our first-ever Golden Grot Awards, recognizing stand-out Grafana dashboards in two categories — personal and professional use — from the community.

Sessions will then stream daily throughout Tuesday, June 13 and Wednesday, June 14 from the GrafanaCON 2023 event page. For sessions that feature a live Q&A, attendees can submit questions via the chat functionality. The speaker will then answer questions via the livestream video. 

On-demand access to sessions will be available at the end of each day.
