What we're about

Join the Elastic Community

This group is for anyone interested in open source search, logging, analytics & data visualization. We primarily focus on these open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats (www.elastic.co/products) — but 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 (https://eemrich.gitbooks.io/elastic-user-group-speaker-guidelines/content/) is full of tips on giving a stellar presentation. If you’re interested visit the elastic/call-for-meetups repo (https://github.com/elastic/call-for-meetups).

Local community organizers wanted! [Only applicable if we don’t have a current organizer]

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 this guide to help you (https://www.elastic.co/community/usergroupguide#overview)get started on your path to starting a Meetup.com user group.

What you’ll gain by being a Community Organizer?:

Public speaking experience

Community leadership and contribution

Networking opportunities

Learn new technical use cases and share your expertise

Special Elastic swag (and bragging rights, of course).

Expectations:

Be a fan of Elastic and possess motivation to help build the community

Commit to organizing the user group for at least one calendar year (at least 3-4 meetups a year)

Attend the meetups

Help find speakers and hosts (Elastic can help connect you with other users)

Create meetup.com announcement (Elastic can help promote)

Order food & beverages (Elastic is happy to sponsor)

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.
