TLDR: We have moved here: meetup.com/Distributed-Tracing-NYC (https://www.meetup.com/Distributed-Tracing-NYC)Great news! Uber has agreed to be the official sponsor for the Meetup group!Partnering with Uber gets us a reliable venue and refreshments and will make it easier to find speakers! But, we had to actually form a new meetup group.We've scheduled our first event!https://www.meetup.com/Distributed-Tracing-NYC/events/253344313/Please join and RSVP! :)Rationale for the changeDisclosure: Uber is my employer.The main objective of the group is to cultivate a local community of folks who are working closely with distributed tracing systems. I'd say this is folks who are:• Consuming - Leveraging distributed tracing data to gain insights or build tools• Instrumenting - Instrumenting library or application code• Core - Implementing distributed tracing systemsThis target makes the group fairly niche, which poses the following challenges (to my thinking):• Hosting meetups – Scheduling, venue, refreshments, etc.• Finding speakers• Finding membersHosting – Uber has absolutely helped as they've been generous enough to host and provide refreshments well into next year. Awesome.Finding speakers – It was pointed out to me that working closely with Uber adds a mountain of credibility relative to being just any Joe off the street.Finding members – Seems like there may be a positive effect here, as well.Important points• First and foremost: The topic of the group is Distributed Tracing (and peripheral topics)• Uber is not the topic of the group• Jaeger (https://www.jaegertracing.io/) (Uber's OSS distributed tracing system) is likely to come up, but the topic is Distributed Tracing, not JaegerAll of that to say: This change benefits the group quite a lot and we're excited to announce our first event!Call for speakersWe intend to schedule a meetup every eight weeks and would love to schedule speakers well beyond that timeframe. Let us know if you're interested in speaking at an upcoming event!
