Get to know the humans who help improve Splunk through their unique experiences, relationships, and voice!
Martin Müller holds a strong background in software engineering and, as a Senior PS Consultant, he has worked on millions of Splunk deployments at all stages. As a SplunkTrust MVP five times over, and in his eight years of using Splunk, Martin says he still hasn't gotten bored of it yet. 🙏
"The incredible helpfulness of everyone in the community was amazing from day one!"
Martin started using Answers as a resource from the get-go and then embraced using the Splunk Community Slackchannel for more direct interactions (previously IRC for those in the know). He sees new use cases for Splunk on a weekly basis and enjoys this "giant global family" filled with people here to help, challenge, share creations, and make fun with/of one another.
"I get to help users be smarter and more efficient about using their data."
Like so many other Splunk community members, attending .conf is a way of replicating positive community connections like these. Martin says it's amazing to get to meet his community family in person, often for the first time. "Hallway-Con" is also something he missed this year during .conf20, as it's a great way to meet people, chat, and deep-dive into technical details while having food and drinks together. One plus, though, was, "not sharing the Wi-Fi with 15,000 of your closest friends 🤣." His best advice for maximizing your .conf experience? Don't overload your schedule. We hope you all figured that one out on your own!
"The atmosphere of a thousand brains churning in a room is irreplaceable."
That's an epic (and wildly accurate) way of describing what it's like to be at .conf! Well, I can assure you, we could definitely feel everyone's brains on the other side of the screen. But, like, not in a creepy, Halloween-y kind of way.
