Last week our three hackers Igor Motov, Honza Král and Shay Banon were on a mission to discover the tech side of Japan. Igor and Honza also held a talk at their first ever Elasticsearch meetup in Tokyo.

Little ELK didn't quite get to travel that far but the German folks at the Java Forum in Stuttgart loved him and even ranked him Number One among all conference freebies at the Java Forum Stuttgart. Sweet!

Now, check out what's on the Elasticsearch calendar for this week (teaser: we have one session where we'll teach you how to monitor your drone project with Elasticsearch!):
Jul 23rd Elasticsearch Meetup (Portland, OR)
Jul 22nd JVM Group (Auckland, NZ)
If you are one of the lucky ones on holiday traveling somewhere around the world, here are 2 holiday tips:
1. You have a plushy ELK? Take it with you, take a fun holiday picture and tweet about it using the #ELKsIntheWild hashtag. Our top 3 will get some awesome swag sent over, so the competition is on!
2. Bored on your sun chair? Just scan through our website and have a look at one or the other cool video on there. :)
That's it for this week, and stay tuned for Elasticsearch happenings next week. We hope to see you at one of our events.
PS: Contact us if you're interested in hosting a meetup or are giving a talk about Elasticsearch - we can offer support and send you swag!
