Next Meetup

Introduction To Elasticsearch & the ELK stack
Our first demo and workshop is happening November 15th from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Viatec building at 777 Fort St, Victoria, BC V8W 1H2, Canada in the Shaw Conference room. This will be the first Meetup for the group and will serve as a comprehensive introduction to Elasticsearch & the ELK stack. The event is free. We will provide a demo that will showcase the capabilities of Elasticsearch as well as the ELK stack, thus we will be using Kibana as our primary visualization tool for the purposes of our demo. The location is TBD (To Be Determined) and the date may be subject to change, pending a dedicated room for this presentation. We are targeting to present to a group of minimum 20 and at most 30 people. Please feel free to bring your laptops to show us your Github and any Elasticsearch projects you are working on as well! :-)

    What we're about

    The data analytics, machine learning and visualization software space is awash in change, and their communities are thriving. We are calling on the existing Victoria tech community and anyone else who would be interested in learning about the benefits of leveraging the ELK stack, whether you're someone from government or business, a dev, have your own startup, an angel investor, hobbyist, or just want to know what the value of ELK and Open Source is in general. Everyone and anyone is welcome.

    Whether it's creating an industry standard dashboard from a Data BC file with drill down in 15 minutes, or detecting statistical anomalies and forecasting leveraging custom machine learning algorithms, or recognizing patterns in data gleaned from public APIs, ELK has it all. Google's Tensorflow is another tool we are using to improve machine learning in training neuronets and image processing, and we are interesting in building the community around this tool as well. We're very interested in building the ELK and Elastic Search community, as well as the Open Source and machine learning communities, and working on building better applications and industry specific open source projects together.

    Of course we are open to any type of contribution or demo of the technology you are using, as the goal is to grow the community as much as possible and be generally technology agnostic when possible.

    The goal of this Meetup is to perform interactive and engaging demos and working sessions where we will demonstrate what using the ELK stack in conjunction with some supplementary open source modules is capable of in terms of raw power, speed, data visualization, machine learning, and much, much more.

    Feel free to bring your own laptops and work on your own projects and show us what you are working on.

    Thank you!
