Hey Ben - If you're in town or attending Dreamforce 2012, we're hosting a casual meetup on W 9/19 that does not require a badge. Mobile-focused professionals encouraged to attend. See details here: http://www.meetup.com/Dreamforce-2012...
This group is for anyone interested in log management and data analysis. Developers, IT, marketing, sales, anyone that deals with logs can benefit from this group as well as professionals that would use log data for analysis of business processes.
We try and meet every other month and have people present on software projects, architectures, experience reports, and any other relevant topic. At heart, this is an informal, social gathering of like-minded enthusiasts who recognize how crucial logging is to any production infrastructure.
Who Should Join the Meetup?
Developers, operators, managers, CTOs
You deal with logs or want to use log data for analytics
You want to meet and learn from your peers
You can't understand why more people aren't using their logs
