The Big Data Beards team loves conferences…I think we’ve established that pretty well.  With Splunk .conf20 being virtual (as have most of the professional racing series), the Big Data Beard team wants to build on the wildly successful Road Trip to .conf19 in the #IoTRV and we’d like to introduce you to Virtual Race 2 .CONF20 (#VR2C)!

Take a quick look at some of the awesomeness that you’ll see.

You can also get all the details from the Big Data Beard Team on this recent podcast that goes deep on the #VR2C!

In this year’s Big Data Beard #VR2C, we will be broadcasting a virtual, global racing series with daily races at historic race tracks around the world in the 10 days leading up to .conf20,starting on October 10th with winners announced at .conf!  We will invite the Splunk community and customers around the world to race against members of the Big Data Beard, the Splunk Lemons Racing Team, competitive eSports drivers and professional racing drivers.  Each race will be broadcasted worldwide with special guest commentators joining the Big Data Beard hosts.  And to make it even more Splunky, we will be Splunking the entire racing series providing real-time insights and analytics from the race, the cars, and the drivers showcasing the power of Splunk’s Data-To-Everything platform.
