What we're about

We’re delighted to have you join the Elastic global community!

This group is for anyone interested in making data usable in real-time and at scale for use cases like security, observability, enterprise search, and many more, using our Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats products ( https://www.elastic.co/products/ ).

Speak at a meetup:

The Community wants to hear from you! Present about your Elastic Stack stories, be it a 5-15 minute lightning talk or a detailed 25-45 minute technical presentation with Q&A. Our Speaker Guide (https://www.elastic.co/community/speaker-guide) 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) or send us an email at meetups@elastic.co.

Onboard observability data into your Elasticsearch deployment using Cribl Stream

Have you ever struggled to get data into your Elastic deployment? Cribl is an observability pipeline solution that allows operators to easily understand and shape their data then quickly onboard it into Elasticsearch. Come join us for a hands on experience where you can learn how to use the Cribl Suite to collect, route, enrich and optimize data prior to indexing it. If you’re looking to migrate to Elasticsearch from other common logging solutions, Cribl can help you make that transition happen. Check us out at https://cribl.io and you can sign up for 1TB of data per day for free on our SaaS offering (https://cribl.cloud).

Our office:

3101 Wilson Blvd., Suite 500 Arlington, VA 22201

When you arrive, please take the elevators to the 5th floor. Entrance to the event will be in the back of the office so please follow the signs when you arrive on the 5th floor.


The parking garage is accessible on N. Herndon Street and is called "Park X". The elevators from the garage will take you straight up to the office on the 5th floor. Parking is $10 a day.
