Beginners Special event - Leeds / Remote

Yorkshire Splunk User Group

Thursday, October 20, 2022, 4:30 – 6:30 PM UTC


An event dedicated to beginners, newbies and aspiring Splunk experts. Skill Level: Beginners / All Skill Levels.

About this event

This months' user group will be dedicated to beginners in the community with little or no Splunk experience.  In a selection of bitesize sessions, we'll be giving an overview of the Splunk solution, some typical use cases, and discussing the (free!) training and certification options available.

We'll be joined by Loretta McCoy, Global Certification Program Specialist at Splunk.

We hope to pique your interest and leave you with confidence to explore Splunk further in your jobs or educational studies. We'll be signposting some of the most useful resources in the Splunk community.  Free Pizza, Beer and other refreshments will be on hand for those attending in person.

For the experts and SPL wizards within our group - this a talk to share with your wider colleagues.
