Welcome back, people of the Dynatrace Community!
In many parts of the world, we're in the second half of summer. Many of you have just returned from holidays, the others are just ahead of the resting time, while some aren't planning summer break in the regular form at all. We would simply love to know what are you keen on doing and what activities let you rest peacefully and how Dynatrace is assisting you in the holidays time ☀️
Let us know in the comments below in any form you prefer. Share some pictures, write a short story... The form is flexible! Don't forget every participant receives 100 bonus points and a unique "Vacationer" badge to keep the summer mood as long as possible 🌅
That's not all! Bring to the table one product idea that you would like to see updated/commented by our Product Managers. We promise to get the update for you! And now... Let's start the challenge!
How Dynatrace assists me during summer vacations?
Does it count?
It is not summer in Brazil, nor vacation time to me, but this is how looks like when is my turn.
The idea, I have just created a new one, and would love to get a feedback update for it: Custom Event for Alerting in Settings 2.0
Still didn't go on vacations.
I believe the Dynatrace mobile app is one my favorites in any occasion. I know Davis keeps working hard to keep alerts under control. And I know that if Davis interrupts me, it might be really important.
There is one case though when this does not happen. If you read the Product Idea below, you will get the idea. And it happened to me last Monday once again, with a holiday here in Portugal: https://community.dynatrace.com/t5/Dynatrace-product-ideas/RFE-AI-should-know-about-holidays/idi-p/1...
Thanks for this Michal. Thanks to Dynatrace I have won 1st prize in Value story event in a yearly APAC meetup. The money did help me to spent my vacation in Singapore and Malaysia😅.
I love to travel and visit attractions of different places. I even won a North face duffle bag which I had carried to my trip.
I would lie if I said I can rest peacefully with my kids 😂 But the truth is we always spend summer vacations in an active way and organize trips on our own 🙂
This year, we decided to explore the region of Lower Silesia, Poland 🇵🇱 It's really beautiful, with numerous castles everywhere. We also did some mountain trips ⛰
This year I've spent my vacations in the Masuria region in North Eastern Poland - which is one of the 28 Wonders of Nature and the Land of a Thousand Lakes (actually there are 2600 of them). That was quite spontaneous this year and not obvious to my family as we usually spend vacations on the seacoast. And this year I've left Dynatrace totally alone, cut-off - so I can relax. Well.. almost... still had Dynatrace in my "back-end storage":
What I did do there? I fed tropical parrots 😂 No, they don't live there in nature 😃.
Hope you had great summertime as well! Looking forward to your product ideas' update requests. I'll help as much as I can!
I'm usually pretty good at cutting off the lines of communication to work during vacation, although I have to admit that there are some planned exceptions 😉
The most challenging part during vacation as a father of two kids is to find some private time....
But this year I tried something new. It took me a while to find a method how to get my kids "grounded", but actually it's really simple:
I had a chance for a two weeks break. 🙂 It was very active. Many things played a role in it: water, chocolate, nature, art, history, dynatrace.
Water - On the first week we had a 3 days canoe trip on a special river section of Danube called Szigetköz. It was beautiful again.😎
Chocolate - On the next week we have visited my cousine in Austria (in Styria) and had a chocolote factory visit (Zotter). yum, yum...😁
Nature - On the way back to Vienna we had a short trip to the Grundlesee and Toplitzsee. The landscape was amazing.🏞
Art, history - In Vienna of course we spent as many time we could in museums and on exhibitions.🖼
Dynatrace - As a Dynatrace fan I planned to visit the DT offices in Austria. 😉 Unfortunately I did not have enough time to check all DT offices in Austira especially in Linz, Graz so finally I visited only the Vienna office.😍
Being a Swede but living half of my life in The Netherlands I still have a lot of my family in Sweden.
due to COVID it’s been difficult to see them last couple of years, but this year I did a workation, 4 weeks of vacation and 2 weeks of remote work.
We did a lot of dinners and such, but one interesting thing we did was to go to a museum in Stockholm called Paradox.
It was a great place for pictures, here is a fun one with my son and nephew.
I took a vacation last month and here is what I have been upto in my vacation.
This is one of beautiful places I have seen. It is a part of western ghats and the mountain is called Velliangiri. At the foot hills there is an amazing yoga centre. It is Isha Yoga Center.
My vacation was cut short in the middle due to a new Dynatrace project starting up (Here's how Dynatrace helps me on vacation 🤣🤣🤣).
but I would like to share with you my favorite beach (Tarfaya Beach in north of Africa) where I spend almost every morning in good company: Oussama Lours and Sofiane el machyane.
I've been to Florida this year but I missed the opportunity to go scuba diving while there, I usually go to the Keys and log a few dives. Maybe Jan 2023 will work better. If you are ever in Florida, make sure to visit the Keys 🙂. a Few photos from an old trip.
We have just arrived from Paris, and, with kids, the stop in Disneyland was mandatory! Although we enjoyed Paris a lot, for our kids Disneyland was really magic! We spent really good couple of days in there! Here the picture going to the night spectacle with lights and fireworks! Really nice one, must say!
Please let me know when you are in town!
Would love to have a chat at the #Cafe or the 🍺 tab after work.
Spring has finally sprung in the southern hemisphere and I can't wait for December, which is our peak holiday period, since we're planning a three-week camping trip. My Dynatrace cap will keep the sun out of my eyes, but other than that, I'm leaving Dynatrace alone for those three weeks - not because I don't love , but simply because I want to spend quality time with my wife and three kids so I need to temporarily 'divorce' my one love in life 😂
I'll likely take my cameras and tripod with me again, to see if I can improve on the photo I took a few years back while on holiday at the same spot.
If there's one product idea that I could really use this week, it would be the merging of database services!
The fact that the status shows 'Under review' makes me hopeful that we might see the ability for this very contentious topic in the platform soon!
We recently came back from two weeks in Eastern Canada and did a 2500km road trip through Quebec and New Brunswick.
Highlights - aside of being outside of Europe again for the first time in 2 1/2 years - were my first two kayaking sessions, the amazing landscape everywhere but especially at the Hopewell Rocks (where the difference between low tide and high tide can reach up to 14m ) and visiting the World's Largest Axe (stands 15m high and weights 55 tons!! ).
I spent my time on the beautiful island of Ibiza 🏝 diving 🤿, and yes, also with one or the other party 🎉🙂
But my worcation in October is very close 🇺🇸. It's great to work in a company where it's possible to see the world and broaden your experience ✈️.
