Let's start summer with the Elastic Stack! Newcomers are *always* welcome at all our meetups, but if you haven't attended a meetup yet, this one is specifically for you! (Familiar faces are welcome, too, and feel free to bring a friend!)
During this informal session several Elastic engineers will be available to help new users to setup the Elastic Stack and index data into their new cluster. Please bring your laptop, download and install the Java 8 SDK (64 bit edition) (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html), and download the latest version of Elasticsearch (https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch), Logstash (https://www.elastic.co/downloads/logstash) and Kibana (https://www.elastic.co/downloads/kibana) to your laptop to speed up the process. We will provide some interesting data to explore and assist in setting things up.
Food and drinks will also be provided.
Logistics notes from our host, edX
"The Kendall Square T-stop is the closest. There is metered parking on the street. The garage across the street from our office is open to the public."
