I would add info about the Geode sessions at the SpringOne conference. "The SpringOne Platform conference in December 2017 included 12 talks  on Apache Geode. The talks were given by users and developers of Geode, covering uses cases, extensions, and integration stories. All the talks were well-attended and the afternoon sessions the first day were standing room only."
