For the inaugural Sydney meetup, we'll be hearing from Clinton Gormley (@clintongormley), Elasticsearch core developer, and Sharif Olorin, Developer at Anchor Systems.
For the last year Clint has been a full time Elasticsearch employee in charge of (amongst other things) "keep[ing] elasticsearch honest", training & evangelising Elasticsearch while developing the Elasticsearch Perl libraries.
Clint will be telling us all about the exciting new features in the upcoming version 1.0 of Elasticsearch as well as taking questions and answers.
Sharif will be covering "Beyond traffic lights: lessons in monitoring large (and small) Elasticsearch clusters for fun, profit and not getting woken up at 3am."
We'll have pizza and beer for all our attendees, so come hungry for noms and knowledge!
