Logstash with Jordan Sissel

There are a number of problems with traditional log management. Most problems are ignored or solved with duct-tape and glue. Jordan Sissel the author of Logstash, will talk about many of those problems and consequences. He will further discuss solutions to some of these problems and present logstash as a general-purpose, free, and open source tool for going from a situation where your logs simply exist to fill up disk to an awesome implementation where your business generates value from your logs.

Jordan is a hacker in San Jose who has been doing operations for 8 years.He practices hate-driven development and gives out hugs upon request. When not hacking, he loves doing awesome things as a dad and a husband.

** Lightning Talks **
- if you want to present something in a lightning talk format (~5 mins) please let us know so we can add you to the agenda. This can be anything (hopefully somehow related to devops, but not
necessary); anything cool you want to share with the group.

- we will have food and beverages thanks to our sponsors Opscode and Scriptrock. Come by around 7pm to socialize and sync up. The presentation will start around 7:30pm.

- there is plenty of parking around the building, and this should not be a problem at all.

Note: if you want to help the group in some way (sponsor a meetup, present at future meetups, etc.) please ping me and let me know.
