This year, barcamps were very focused around the next version of Centreon: the version 3!!! The #4 barcamp had started to collect the first feedback from our participants on this new Centreon’s version. The most of #5 barcamp, not only taken place it outside the CENTERON (Merethis oldest) office but it was open to the general public to gather a 30 people in the heart of Bastille!
The day was organized around a presentation of advances Centreon and 3 different presentations: expectations of a DSI, Auchan feedbacks, Rudder & Centreon and Centreon at Criteo.
We were keen to invite you to our events, but also to meet you!

Tools and the change of tools
Our tools forge / forum / IRC are always available to you, but we try to modernize them and still continue in 2015. In fact, community forge became more binding and activeless, so we decided to boost this. In December, community forge migrated kindly to github.
A good product can only be good with good documentation. That is why we have invested a lot of time to offer much quality documentation. We would like to provide you the French AND English versions, which are now done for all non-technical documentation. You can fetch information about our documentary platform.
Focus Centreon Plugin
What a surprise for 1 year! Early 2013, the project grouped of a set of 30 “plugins” Today, there are now over 100!
All thanks to the work of Quentin Garnier, Kevin Duret, Simon Bomm David Sabatié but Florian Ashe and all others.
You will find a non-exhaustive list here.
Participate, you too, to extend the functionality and add new pollers!
