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.

Canvas Deep Dive [Boulder]

Rule4, Inc.

Canvas introduces a whole new way of making data look amazing in Kibana; it combines data with colors, shapes, text, and your own imagination to bring dynamic, multi-page, pixel-perfect, data displays to screens large and small. Join us for an introduction to Canvas and a deep dive into the powerful expression language that is designed to radically simplify the way you think about retrieving and manipulating data. You'll walk away from this session equipped to start working with Canvas right away, as well as an understanding of the Expression syntax, and how they can be applied more broadly in your projects. *** Event Agenda *** 5:30PM - 6:00PM Networking 6:00PM - 7:00PM Presentation 7:00PM - 7:30PM Q&A and Networking *** About the Speaker *** Luke Elmers is a Senior Engineer at Elastic, member of the Kibana Application Architecture Team.
