What’s in store for Developers at .conf2014

In less then a week, .conf2014 kicks off at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. As in past years, there won’t only be tons of great keynotes, sessions and training for the entire Splunk community, but also plenty of things tailored just for developers.

  • Once again, Splunk University starts off the week with hands-on training, including an intense Splunk App Developer Bootcamp
  • This year we’re introducing the Splunk Dev Lounge, a dedicated space for hacking on Splunk throughout the conference. All throughout the week, you’ll find members of the engineering and evangelist teams ready to answer any question or guide you in the right direction. We’ll also have chalk talk sessions (heavy on code, light on slides) led by Splunkers as well as partners like Auth0 (maybe you read about them in USA Today) and community developers like Rich and Erica who won the Splunk App Contest last year with their Splunk for your Car App. Whether you’re new to Splunk and want to dig in at your own pace or a Splunk Ninja looking to pick up new skills building Splunk Apps, working with the SDKs or extending Splunk with modular inputs and custom search commands, the Splunk Dev Lounge is the place to be at .conf2014.
  • We have another full docket of sessions, covering everything from Splunk for .NET developers (led by community luminary and Splunker Glenn Block) to Splunking the Java Virtual Machine (led by Splunk Worldwide Evangelist Damien Dallimore) to building Splunk Apps to DevOps topics.
  • We’ll also have a Splunk for Developers booth at the Splunk Apps Showcase, with Splunkers on hand to show you the latest and greatest in building Splunk Apps, integrating Splunk with the REST API and SDKs and using Splunk to monitor App Dev and DevOps processes. Stop by to see what’s new and find out how you can do more as a developer with Splunk.

Throw in the great networking and socializing, and .conf2014 looks to be the biggest and best .conf yet. See you in Vegas!
