Take your first steps with Icinga for a most efficient use of the tool in the Icinga Essentials Workshop with the Icinga consultant Thilo Wening. Thilo has many years of experience with Icinga. Giving advice to large customers and holding trainings is part of his daily job.

In our Icinga Director workshop you get a hands-on training in Icinga configuration and automation skills by “Mr. Director” himself. Thomas Gelf is the main developer of the Director at Icinga, and works as Icinga consultant. He knows exactly how to tweak Director with diverse requirements.

Roadmap to Master Monitoring

New date

Please note, that the date of the conference changed. Even though we have experience with organizing events such as our Icinga Camps, and are backed by a fantastic events team, it still can happen that we have to adjust details during the planing phase. Due to various scheduling conflicts which could not be foreseen, we had to move the IcingaConf 2020 to a new date.

The new date for IcingaConf 2020 is: June 23 – 25, 2020
