Syracuse University’s iSchool IT Girls want to change the world with data
This past Veteran’s Day weekend, I was in Syracuse, NY with fellow Splunker Christy Wilson, attending the 3rd annual IT Girls overnight retreat at Syracuse University’s iSchool. One of the goals of the retreat is to introduce the 100 selected high school girls from around the US to technology concepts, and to inspire them to pursue careers either in, or related to technology–but we were the ones who came away inspired.
The girls travel to the event from all over the country. Most are from neighboring cities including New York, Philadelphia, and the DC area, but the event is expanding its reach–some attendees were from further afield, coming from Texas and Georgia. Some parents also traveled to Syracuse …
Splunk and Ford Test Drive Open Data Development in Connected Cars

CLI sparklines? Yea we got that!
The lunch table at Splunk is an odd place. Sometimes you can have a 45-minute discussion about bananas (I regret having missed out on the Gros Michel), other times you learn about stealth features in Splunk. Did you know you can create sparklines on the CLI?!? I didn’t either!
Thanks Mitch! …

Customers, big data, mobile and cloud – Splunk.conf2013 – an EMEA perspective
I’ve just got back from Splunk’s .conf2013 in Las Vegas (my first .conf) and it was quite a week.
It was my first time to Las Vegas so after getting over the hot air balloon alongside the Eiffel Tower which was opposite a pirate ship which was next to a water volcano – the conference began in earnest on Monday.
There was a great buzz around the whole show. Splunk pretty much took over the Cosmopolitan Hotel so you ended up with an interesting mix of gamblers, people from the pool party and customers proud of their Splunk t-shirts stating “Data Models > Dating Models”.
2000 – the number of people at the conference from all over the …
