Zabbix Conference 2013 – in Latvia

We’ve had two awesome events already – Zabbix Conference 2011 and Zabbix Conference 2012. They both were held in Riga, the Zabbix hometown, at the end of September.

Zabbix conference last year – 2012

We have decided on the dates and place for Zabbix Conference 2013 – it will again happen in Latvia, and it’s moved a bit more towards the summer – September 6th and 7th.

While other countries were considered this time, we decided to go for Latvia still, as it is easier to organise an event here. Of course, we also had several community members actively bug us about conference being in Latvia again – apparently, they have grown fond of it πŸ™‚

The exact location for the conference has not been decided on yet, but we were advised to warn the potential host about “hundreds of geeks with a wifi need”, as the Zabbix crowd is able to bring a wireless network to its knees in most venues.

We would also suggest to use the chance and see more of Latvia before and after the conference – but definitely plan to arrive early on the previous day as we will have a welcoming event to meet old friends and find new ones.

Many prominent community members have already confirmed their presence – so start planning for September 5-7 in Latvia πŸ™‚

The cradle and headquarters of Zabbix. When you arrive, it might be useful to have a visual idea of what’s happening where though, so here’s a map of potentially interesting things in Riga – and outside of it.

Zabbix went to Akademy

Akademy, if you happen to not know about it, is a yearly KDE conference that’s followed by various workshops and other events. This year Akademy happened to be really close to the Zabbix home, Riga – just some 300 km away in Tallinn, capital of Estonia. We decided to find out whether Akademy was any good.

CeBIT 2012, second day

The first day of CeBIT2012 was extremely busy and very productive for the Zabbix team.
We were pleasantly surprised to meet lots of old friends – thank you all for visiting us.
We also made new friends from many countries across the world, and we hope for a long lasting cooperation with every one of you.
