    Livingsocial did a great job hosting and having their bases covered by having a few different developers present to answer questions.

    Hi everyone,

    Heard from a couple of folks that the meetup went well. All feedback welcome and appreciated!

    We'll be sharing video of the talks soon.

    Did anyone happen to get a final headcount they could share with me? Having actual attendee numbers vs. number of registrants helps us make sure we order enough food without sending everyone home with two days worth of leftovers. :)

    Thanks! I'll post a link to the video here when it's ready.

    Hi folks,

    Greetings from Berlin! Looks like the meetup is just getting started. I wish that I could join you this evening, but obviously it's a very long flight. :)

    Many thanks to LivingSocial for hosting us and speaking tonight!

    If folks would let me know if they have photos or video to share, I would be grateful. You can just upload them to the meetup group or email them to me, whatever works best for you. If I have your permission to use these resources, we will look at featuring them in our weekly round up blog post, This Week in Elasticsearch. Here's a recent sample in case you are interested:

    Have a wonderful meetup! I will join you folks in person sooner rather than later.
