Sensu Summit 2017 is the inaugural technology and user conference from Sensu, Inc. Join community leaders, Sensu employees, and other users for two days of technical talks, tutorials, discussions, and hallway track conversations. This is your best opportunity to hang out and learn from the engineers building the Sensu platform.


Keynote presentation from Sean Porter (original author of the Sensu monitoring framework, and CTO & Co-founder of Sensu, Inc.). Featured presentations from Sensu Core and Sensu Enterprise users, including those from GoDaddy, Yelp, GE, Citibank, and more, on how they are using Sensu at scale. Lightning talks from Sensu community members. Closing keynote presentation from Greg Poirier (VP Engineering) on the next-generation Sensu platform (the first public technical deep dive on what we’ve been building).

Special one-day Sensu Training, focused on advanced topics and more recent additions to the Sensu framework. Community organized events! We will have a dedicated hacking space with round tables for groups to participate in “hack day” projects around the open source Sensu framework. Members of the Sensu engineering and support teams will be present to answer questions and assist.


Sensu Summit 2017 will be held at the historic Portland Art Museum — the seventh oldest art museum in the United States. The unique collection of historic and modern art will provide a fitting atmosphere for a lively discussion of Sensu's past, present, and future.


Downtown Portland Oregon is located approximately 12 miles from the Porland International Airport (PDX) — about 20 minutes by car, or 45 minutes via public transportation. The Portland Art Museum itself is situated within walking distance of several highly recommended hotels, including The Paramount Hotel, Hotel Modera, The Sentinel Hotel, and The Westin Portland.
