At SaltConf19 in Salt Lake City last November I stood on stage and announced SaltConf20 EU as the first-ever SaltStack user conference to be held in Europe. The dates and location were set for the week of June 8, 2020, in Geldermalsen, Netherlands at Sue B.V. headquarters. We opened the call for speakers and had planned to open registration two weeks ago.

We were also making plans for SaltConf20 US to return to Salt Lake City in the fall of this year.

Then coronavirus forced all of us to change the way we work and interact. At SaltStack we had no choice but to be responsible global citizens and put 2020 SaltConf events on hold.

In addition, all SaltStack employees are currently working remote as we do everything we can to implement social distancing and help flatten the curve. Virtual SaltStack will maintain normal operations while we continue to deliver world-class support, services, and infrastructure automation and security operations software to our customers.

We encourage the SaltStack community to be selfless and thoughtful by following guidance from local governments and health officials so we can get through this trying time as quickly as possible.

When life returns to normal we will communicate plans for future SaltConf events. In the meantime virtual SaltStack will substantially increase our online events and community engagement so we can all stay connected.

Thank you for your continued support of SaltStack. We look forward to seeing more of you virtually, for now. Stay healthy and be good to each other.
