About the trainer
Julius Volz co-founded the Prometheus monitoring system, created PromQL, and led the project to success at SoundCloud and beyond. He now focuses on growing the Prometheus community, started PromLabs to build solutions and services around Prometheus, and started PromCon, the first conference around Prometheus. Before SoundCloud, Julius was a Site Reliability Engineer at Google.
With Julius as your training instructor, you will have a unique chance to learn and interactively discuss the ins and outs of PromQL directly with the original creator of the language.
Read what previous participants of this workshop are saying:
"I am an intern at Grafana Labs and this was really helpful for me. I have a better understanding of not only PromQL but the Prometheus ecosystem in general. The teaching material covers everything. The instructor's pace is also perfect and way of explaining is awesome!"
— Atibhi Agrawal, Grafana Labs
"This class was a great introduction to PromQL, and did a great job building on the basics to more advanced querying techniques. There were exercises throughout the class to reinforce concepts, and the training materials were made available to participants for further study. Julius made himself available for any questions throughout the class, and stayed after the class ended until all questions were answered. Julius even made himself available after the class via email for any follow up questions. This goes above and beyond any training course I've taken in the past. Great job! I can highly recommend this class!"
— Andrew Dampf, Linode
