The best thing about travelling? Definitely meeting people! My four colleagues and I had the chance to be guests at Pivotal and Slack in San Francisco.

Our group used the trip to Elastic{ON}17 in San Francisco as an opportunity to meet with other people who are active in the Icinga universe. Our first stop was at Pivotal who were kind enough to host our Icinga Camp at their office.

After a warm welcome at Pivotal, our keynote speaker Blerim Sheqa started our Icinga Camp by welcoming our guests. His talk provided insights into the current state and development of Icinga 2. Subsequently we heard about Icinga Director, in detail the current features and how it works from Markus Frosch. Our third talk about Elastic Stack and how to integrate it with Icinga 2 by Thomas Widhalm rounded off the camp.

Again, this Icinga Camp was a perfect way for customers and users to get to know the team members from NETWAYS. Our speakers were happy to answer many interesting and sophisticated questions as well as to take in ideas and requests from the audience. In the end, everybody attending the camp profited a lot from these discussions.

Out next stop was at Slack Headquarters where we were invited for a rather casual get-together. The people at Slack were mainly interested in Icinga 2, Icinga Web 2 and all the features available now and in the future. Furthermore it was extremely interesting to get an insight into American company culture and to compare it to Germany. All in all, we had a very good time at Slack HQ, met nice people and everybody was able to gather useful information and facts.

Again a big thank you to our hosts, it was a pleasure to be your guests!
