Hope to see you {ON} tour this Fall

It’s been almost 6 months since our first user conference -- Elastic{ON} -- and while we were able to bring together 1,000+ people in San Francisco, many of you have been waiting for us to come on tour and visit a city near you.

As our community has grown to 120 meetup groups and 34,000 members around the globe, I’ve always felt that events like meetups, user conferences, and city tours are important to engage our community, foster new friendships, learn and share new ideas, and for you to hear from us as to what we’re working on and how you can get involved.

So starting this October and through December, the team at Elastic will be hitting the road across 12 cities in the U.S., EMEA and Asia. After a short break for the holidays, we’ll be hosting our 2nd user conference in San Francisco at Pier 48 from February 17 - 19 2016, so please save this date in your calendar as we’ll be doubling this event in size and content.

Based on lots of great feedback from the community, each tour stop will have a full-day of content, and will include products technical deep dive and roadmap covering Apache Lucene, Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, Logstash and Hadoop. Our customers and users will share their use cases ranging from search, logging, analytics, and more. By popular request, there will be an Ask Me Anything (AMA) booth open for the entire day for anyone to ask our developers any questions they want!

Lastly, I’m personally excited that 100% of the registration proceeds (approx $75 USD per ticket) will be donated to local charities. Thanks to all of you, you’ve helped us build a wonderful community, and I want everyone to know that they in addition to helping us build better products, by attending our tour events, you’re helping others, such as:

  • TechBridge (Washington, D.C) - helping girls discover passion in engineering and science 
  • CoderDojo (Amsterdam) - helping children learn how to code 
  • AbilityNet (London) - helping disabled people learn how to use technology 
  • Docteur Souris (Paris) - providing technology to more than 12,000 children in 32 hospitals 
  • Django Girls (Munich) - inspiring women to learn programming 
  • Code/Interactive (NYC) - building technology career paths for underserved students 
  • ChiS&E (Chicago) - hands-on engineering and science activities for K-12 students 
  • Shared Science (LA) - delivering science and engineering learning opportunities for children

I can’t wait to see you either on tour or in San Francisco at Elastic{ON} 16.
