About this event

Welcome and thanks for signing up, everyone! It's finally time for the first Berlin Prometheus meetup on Monday, January 23. Thanks to our kind friends from Kinvolk for offering us their space!

We still need to determine the program details, but we plan on having one or two talks about Prometheus, plus some discussion. If you would like to present at this meetup (or a subsequent one), please write me at [masked]!

6:30pm - 7:00pm - Arrival | food + drinks | networking

7:00pm - 7:10pm - Introduction

7:10pm - 7:40pm - Prometheus@JustWatch (Dominik Schulz)


JustWatch is a service for movie and TV show fans - to help you find out where to watch movies legally.

In this talk we will give an overview over why and how we use Prometheus.


Dominik is Head of Infrastructure at JustWatch, a Berlin-based movie marketing company. Before that he was responsible for IT operations of at ProSiebenSat.1.

7:50pm - 8:20pm - Grafana is not enough: DIY user interfaces for Prometheus (David Kaltschmidt)


This talk gives a quick overview of the currently available Prometheus UIs and shows ways to build your own interfaces to enable your workflows. Most popular among the UIs is Grafana, which works well with Prometheus and is lovely for dashboarding, but terrible for troubleshooting. What do you do if you want to slightly modify queries based on your dashboards? How can you explore the keys and values of your metric labels quickly? Having trouble remembering PromQL syntax? This talk presents small building UI blocks to get to your results faster and save the day.


David has been building UIs for the networking industry for over a decade. He is currently with Weaveworks and heads their UI team. (Twitter: @davkals)

8:20pm - 9:30pm - Mingle time

Stay tuned for more details in the next days.
