August 2017 Meeting Recap

Thank you to everyone that attended the August meeting.  It was a great turn out.  A big thank you to Sirius for hosting the meeting.

If you would like to get in touch with our guest speaker from the FBI, please email contact@splunk402.com and someone will get you in touch with him.  The Special Agents details will not be posted on the site.  It was great to be able to talk with the Special Agent and listen to his take on different topics.

Future Meeting Topics

What topics should we work on in the upcoming/future user group meetings? Is there something you want to get hands on learning with? What are the topics you have thought to yourself “I wanted to try this but don’t want to risk breaking my environment”?  What different technologies have you wanted to learn more about and see how we can tie them in to Splunk?  We want to know what is on your mind.

We have already heard people asking us for more information on Splunk and Machine Learning Head Clustering, Examples of the HTTP Collector, and using/building APIs for Splunk.  We are working on helping to get topics on this for upcoming meetings.  We want to know what else is on your mind.
