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!

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 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).


- 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)

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

What's new in the Elastic Stack?

Code Computerlove, 4th Floor, Sevendale House, Dale Street,

👋🏻Please join us for the next Elastic Manchester meetup! 🎙We will have two presentations: * "Performance, free Security and stronger Data Management - what's new in Elastic land" by Emanuil Tolev, Community Advocate at Elastic Development of Elasticsearch and the related suite of tools continues at a breakneck pace. Come and learn what's new with the major upgrade to version 7! Buckle up because there are a lot of big developments to talk about. We'll geek out for a bit with Elasticsearch's recent advances in the dark arts of elegantly making things fast. We'll talk about new free data management features fresh out of beta (Index Lifecycle Management and SQL). Last but not least, we'll talk about a pretty big security announcement: in understanding what an important role defaults play in security, we've released some previously commercial security code as free features in our default distribution. TLS encryption and Role-based Access Control are pretty fundamental and go a long way towards securing clusters for free so we'll go over what they are and how to make use of them. * TBD by Matt Houghton, Data Services Technical Consultant at CDL 📝Agenda: 18:00 Doors open + pizza & beverages & mingling 18:30 Talk 1: TBD, by Matt Houghton 19:15: Talk 2: Performance, free Security and stronger Data Management - what's new in Elastic land, by Emanuil Tolev 20:00 More mingling 20:30 Meetup ends 🍕Food and beverages will be provided.
