2009 OpenNMS Users Conference Europe Update

Things are moving forward for our first ever users conference, which will be held at the Le Meridien Parkhotel in Frankfurt on 14 March. I’m getting very excited about this, and it looks like we’ll have at least 6 OGP members in attendance.

The morning will consist of a short training course with a subset of our “A Day in the Life” training. This will cover a number of issues faced by systems and network administrators and how to use OpenNMS to solve them.

The afternoon will consist of two tracks of one hour presentations on various aspects of OpenNMS, including using maps, syslog integration, reporting, using OpenNMS with Asterisk, etc.

We are still making final changes to the agenda. Jonathan is coming from the UK and I believe he’ll be doing a talk on the OTRS integration (which will probably take the place of my remote poller talk). I want to add an OGP roundtable at the end of the day to discuss the OpenNMS Roadmap and what is coming in the future, as well as to demo our trunk release with the WMI integration and other new features.

The cost will be 220€ with an early bird special of 199€ until 22 February. We’ve also reserved a block of rooms at the hotel which are first come, first serve.

It should be a good day, and I’m looking forward to seeing some of you in person for the first time, as well as meeting a bunch of new people. Many thanks to Simona at Nethinks for doing a lot of the work setting this up, and please feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions or comments (or just use the comment section below).
