What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in Elastic open source projects Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats, (www.elastic.co/products). We cover search, logging, analytics & data visualization. We welcome talks on any aspect of data exploration.


## We want to hear from you — and so do other meetup members!

Present about your Elastic Stack stories, be it a lightning talk or a 25-45 minute presentation with Q&A. Our Speaker Guide [1] is full of tips on giving a stellar presentation. If you’re interested visit the elastic/call-for-meetups repo [2].

## Host a meetup:

Hosting a meetup at your office, is another way to get more involved with the community. This is a great way to showcase your space (especially if you’re trying to recruit). Your facilities don't need to be fancy — we're looking for a comfortable vibe, a projector, screen, chairs, and a place to serve refreshments. Email meetups@elastic.co if you’re interested.


## Local community organizers wanted!

We’d love to have this user group meet more regularly, so we’re looking for a local organizer who will help the group thrive, and the Community Team at Elastic is here to support you. If you’re interested email us at meetups@elastic.co.

We know that people enjoy giving back to the communities they care about, so we've created a guide [1] to help you get started on your path to starting a Meetup.com user group.
