About this event

We're excited to have you join us virtually at 2:00pm on Thursday, May 14th for our first ever Splunk Australia and New Zealand national user group! This is a temporary replacement for local Brisbane user group and online only.  Please be sure to RSVP on this page to access the virtual event URL.

We'll kick things off with a welcome, some announcements, followed by our speakers for the afternoon.

Our first speaker Eric Hoy, a Splunk enthusiast from icare NSW will share his expertise with enabling icare's workforce to work remotely during the COVID-19 Crisis.

Next up, Kyle Prins, from Dell EMC will describe how the team at Dell uses Splunk to help customers during the Black Friday rush and all throughout the year as well!

The final Speaker Mike Barry, helps run the ZSU gaming community and hosting the Squad servers for the Australian region. Mike will talk about how they use Splunk to ensure that each and every game is free of Racism, Trolls, cheats and to enforce the games rules.

In closing, the event will end with community break-out and sharing sessions. (BYO Pizza + Beers :))
