Program

A thoughtful, single-track collection of Sensu talks on day one including keynote presentations from Kelsey Hightower, Staff Developer Advocate for Google Cloud Platform, Sean Porter (original author of the Sensu monitoring framework, and CTO & Co-founder of Sensu, Inc.), Paul Reed, a seasoned build release engineer and expert on incident management, and Caleb Hailey, CEO at Sensu. You'll also hear from Sensu Core and Enterprise users, including folks from T-Mobile, Workday, Box, and more on how they are using Sensu at scale. We'll also have lightning talks from Sensu community members and plenty of time for hallway track conversations.

Day two is a special Community unconference. We’ll break out for our community unconference, with hands-on tutorials, discussions around our stickiest monitoring challenges, and lightning talks for our community of maintainers, users and partners. Sensu engineers will be on hand to talk through what you’re working on and lend help when needed.

Venue

Sensu Summit 2018 will be held at the historic Portland Art Museum — the seventh oldest art museum in the United States. The unique collection of historic and modern art will provide a fitting atmosphere for a lively discussion of Sensu's past, present, and future. Come enjoy Portland in the summer!

Travel

Downtown Portland Oregon is located approximately 12 miles from the Porland International Airport (PDX) — about 20 minutes by car, or 45 minutes via public transportation. The Portland Art Museum itself is situated within walking distance of several highly recommended hotels, including The Paramount Hotel, Hotel Modera, The Sentinel Hotel, and The Westin Portland.
