Announcing Pulsar Virtual Summit Europe 2021: CFP Is Open!

Carolyn King
Former VP of Growth, StreamNative

We’re excited to announce the first-ever Pulsar Virtual Summit Europe!

The inaugural Pulsar Summit North America took place in June 2020. Since then we’ve hosted the Pulsar Summit Asia in November 2020, and the Pulsar Summit North America in June 2021.

Last month’s Pulsar Summit attracted 550+ signups and 250+ companies, including Netflix, Adobe, Cisco, Disney, Oracle, Rakuten, Workday, Twitter, Lowes, CME Group, and Dell. The two-day, virtual event was packed with 6 keynotes and 33 breakout sessions from some of the biggest Pulsar users, such as Splunk, Intuit, Micro Focus, Narvar, Iterable, VMware, and Tencent.

Cumulatively, the Pulsar Summits drew more than 100 speakers, thousands of attendees, and hundreds of companies from diverse industries. The Pulsar Summit is the global event for engineers, architects, data scientists, and technical leaders interested in Pulsar and the messaging and streaming ecosystem. It is a unique opportunity to network and learn about Pulsar project updates, ecosystem developments, best practices, and adoption stories.
