Slides & Videos
For those of you who want to get your hands dirty with the ES-PHP client, here's a nice intro tutorial for you to sing along with.
Were you at OSCON a few weeks back? The Elasticsearch team was and there were some great talks from our merry band of humans - including this one from our intrepid community manager Leslie Hawthorn.
And lest we forget, there were also a few great OSCON presentations from our amazing Elasticsearch community members, including this presentation from our friends at Mozilla.
Where to find Us
We'd love to feature all the great Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana presentations and meetups happening worldwide in this section. If you're speaking or hosting a meetup, let our Community Manager, Leslie Hawthorn, know!
The Warsaw Java Users Group is holding a Microservices Hackathon on August 9th from 10 AM to 10 PM. You can spend those twelve hours hacking on the ELK stack and a variety of other tools. Register now to attend.
Where to Find You
Our Community Manager, Leslie Hawthorn, is hard at work to help folks create more Elasticsearch meetup groups and to help meetup organizers find more speakers. If you are interested in either effort, take a moment to let her know.
Oh yeah, we're also hiring. If you'd like us to find you for employment purposes, just drop us a note. We care more about your skill set and passion for Elasticsearch, Kibana, and Logstash than where you rest your head.
