6:05pm - Getting Started with Elasticsearch - Steve Mayzak
Elasticsearch is at the heart of the popular open source Elastic Stack. The level of experience our meetup attendees have with Elastic can vary widely, so sometimes it's good to go back to the basics and that's what we'll be doing at this meetup! • What is Elasticsearch?
• What problems are people solving with Elasticsearch?
• Examples of how to load data into and run search queries against Elasticsearch
• Using Kibana to quickly visualize data in Elasticsearch
Steve Mayzak heads up the Solutions Architecture team at Elastic. Having been in the software industry for over 19 years he has worked as a Developer, Architect, Consultant, Engineering manager and most recently as a Sales engineering leader. Steve loves bringing cutting edge Open Source technology to customers large and small and helping them solve some of their biggest and most interesting challenges.
