Splunk’s annual conference is a great way to learn about the newest Splunk features, see real-world use cases, and get advice from Splunk experts from all over the world. Due to a certain global pandemic, last year’s event was entirely online, but this year they are back in Las Vegas for .conf21, with a simultaneous online experience available!

If you can’t make it to Las Vegas, much of the same content will be available online, either live-streamed in US Pacific time, or available to watch on-demand in your own time. This year, .conf21 is offering 200+ sessions across seven learning tracks. This is a unique opportunity to join Splunk experts and look beyond traditional data strategies to new approaches for keeping up with the increasing volume, variety and velocity of your data. You’ll be able to visit the product and sponsor booths available at the in-person event and have the same opportunities for networking with other Splunk users and bring your questions to the Splunk Experts.

I attended Splunk .conf20 online last year and found it to be a hugely valuable event. The conference interface was easy to navigate, and being able to watch sessions on-demand took away the problem of having multiple interesting sessions being scheduled at the same time. There were lots of opportunities to talk to other participants via chat features, and the same opportunity to talk to sponsors as at the real-life events. On that basis, I’m confident that this hybrid experience will be well worth attending virtually.

To find out more, and to register for .conf21, visit the Splunk website. Hope to see you there!
