We Proudly Announce the SplunkTrust .conf23 Membership

The goal of the SplunkTrust™ program is not to recognize users in the room who know the most about Splunk. Rather, the SplunkTrust program was created to acknowledge and recognize the most helpful users in the room. We look for individuals that connect their domain expertise, their knowledge of Splunk, and their passion to help others find success. An ideal SplunkTrust candidate has demonstrated high participation in multiple areas of the Splunk community during the previous year.

What's so wonderful about being a member of the SplunkTrust? Primarily, it’s an honor that represents a recognition by peers that the person embodies the hallmarks of the program — being helpful, technical, knowledgeable, and readily available. And it comes with perks, too! SplunkTrust members receive the coveted Splunk Fez with membership pin, Splunk EDU credits, and a free pass to .conf23. Members are also entitled to use the SplunkTrust logo on their professional profiles on sites such as LinkedIn, and their status is designated with a fez icon on their Splunk Community profile. 

Additionally, there are virtual events held throughout the year exclusively for members of the SplunkTrust, and we have dedicated speaking slots for members at our .conf events to showcase their thought-leadership and knowledge.

Splunk inducts the cohort of SplunkTrust members annually at our .conf event. This year, we have 14 new members joining the 57 returning members from our previous SplunkTrust selection.

We are excited to announce our .conf23 SplunkTrust cohort:

Jason grew up in a world far, far away from Marketing called, “The Land of IT.”  This world was filled with horrors and dangers around every corner.  One day Jason discovered the Splunk, and using curl pulled forth the software package as a chorus of cherubs sang from the heavens.  After years as a Splunk Architect, Jason sought out the source of the Splunk.  After an arduous quest, Jason joined the Marketing clan of the Splunk and now works with the Splunk community.  Jason now follows the SplunkTrust around with coconut halves making clip-clop sounds.
