Elastic is the company behind the Elastic Stack — that's Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash. From stock quotes to Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, we help people explore and analyze their data differently using the power of search. Yara Tercero is a Software Engineer at Elastic. She loves learning new languages. When she was younger that meant Spanish and English, eventually Italian and French; my passion for languages naturally progressed into a career as a software engineer. https://www.linkedin.com/in/yaratp/
