July was an exciting month at Cribl! That’s right, as not only did we Turn Up the Heat with Cribl’s Summer Product Launch, but we also hosted our first full-on CriblCon in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, and it was nothing short of a blast! We had you, our customers, in the audience, on stage, and in our demo booths. It was all-around innovation awesomeness! As we celebrate innovation, we cannot stress how important your loyalty and insights have been to our journey. The motto of Innovation with a Purpose–our commitment to solving meaningful problems for and with you–was on full display.
If you missed it OR you’re still replaying all those great presentations in your head and trying to formulate a plan of action for your team, we’ve got you! The keynote and customer presentations are available for you at https://cribl.io/criblcon.
But while it’s still fresh in my mind, let’s recap a few of the highlights from the event:
What a great lineup of presenters! And more importantly, what an awesome set of use cases and actionable ideas to take back to your own deployments. How about another virtual round of applause for that crew?
We also had a chance to recognize our first customer award winners—What would Cribl be without our amazing community? Whether it is in Slack, on Curious, LinkedIn, Reddit, X, or any other social media platform, our community is there giving us honest feedback and supporting each other. Thank you!
Shawn has been very active in our Community Slack. He is in the top 1% of Slack users–but he doesn’t stop there–he’s also the co-host of our Virtual User Group, presented at CriblCon, and shared his ideas on video! You might see him asking questions about APIs or different functions. Thanks, Shawn for your awesomeness!
Biscuit is another one of our top Slack members being in the 1% club. We typically find him asking and answering questions about Kubernetes. I mean, who among us hasn’t rejoiced and screamed at their containers? His go-to function is eval, “The Workhorse.” He’s also shared his best practices in one of our first customer webinars and worked with us on a case study.
Was there a time in Cribl’s history when XPAC wasn’t answering questions? Or is there a time of day when xpac isn’t helping someone? If it is 2 AM and you are banging your head against the desk while trying to figure something out and you ask the Community the question, he is there. Check XPAC’s video interview and his virtual user group presentations.
Thank you to all of our GOAT Chain winners AND to the rest of our community contributors. You rock! Can’t wait to see more of you up here next year. Another virtual round of applause for everyone y’all.
But like I said earlier CriblCon wasn’t the only big event last week, just in case you missed it, we did all this while launching our latest version of Stream, Edge, and Search! This product launch is all about enabling teams and multiple users to work together seamlessly while focusing on security, access control, and providing valuable data insights on demand. Who says you can’t have it all? Take a look at all the details!
As we close out this year and start planning for next year, I leave you with a few tidbits from our keynote that resonated with me when delivered AND are still on my mind as I write this up.
Or as Clint said, “we noodle around for a few months and we bring you some shit that doesn’t look all that great and you tell us how it can be better!”
And last but not least, partnership is a two-way street. Keep the engagement and feedback coming–tell us what you think and what should be next. Early survey feedback tells us you’re looking for more (and possibly meatier) technical content. So we’ll look to the user groups, Cribl Curious, and some of the channels on Slack to source topics for How Tos, and cover them in sandboxes, upcoming user group meetings, or host office hours to tackle longer-form topics. Some of our goats recently join a Cribl live stream as well for an “unwind” as well. You can watch it below.
We want to give the people what they need! And not make you wait a year for it!
Until next time!
