Where in the World is Elasticsearch? - June 16, 2014

Quick answer: In Amsterdam, London and Paris. But wait, you actually want the details...keep reading and we’ll drop all location knowledge you want (and maybe even more ;-)).


We’ve got a busy week in our hometown of Amsterdam with sessions at two fantastic international conferences.

Join us at DevOps Days Amsterdam from June 19th - 21st at the Pakhuis de Zwijger - Amsterdam. Thanks to popular demand, two of our awesome engineers Kurt Hurtado and Lee Hinman will be hosting a workshop on Elasticsearch & The ELK stack on Thursday, June 19th. Additionally, our much-loved and heralded Community Manager, Leslie Hawthorn, will present her DevOps: For Happier, More Productive People talk at 10:30 AM on Saturday, June 21st.

As always, the whole crew welcomes you to swing by and say hi at the Elasticsearch table. Come and share your stories with us, hear about what’s going on and pick up some fun swag to boot!

On June 19th & 20th in the heart of the city, we’ll have a team at GOTO Amsterdam. Our CTO, Shay Banon, will treat the crowd to a Deep dive on Elasticsearch’s APIs. Shay will also join Phil Wills from The Guardian News and Media to tell the story of “How Elasticsearch Powers the Guardian's Newsroom." When you’re not in sessions, grab a coffee and follow the scent of delicious warm Dutch syrup waffles which we’ll be baking fresh at our booth. If you’re feeling healthy - and please don’t, stroopwaffles are amazing! - we’ll have cool swag up for grabs too.


Elasticsearch will be on stage during Internet World at the first ever London Technology Week at the London EXCEL on June 17th. Our own Mark Harwood will be telling you all about how to Make sense of your (big) data and analyze in real-time like you have never done before! Mark’s talk is at 16:00 in the Big Data & Analytics theatre.

Can’t make Mark’s talk, but have a need to quench your Elasticsearch thirst whilst in London? The London Elasticsearch User Group has got you covered as they will be hosting a special meetup on June 18th starting at 17:00 at The Marketplace. We’ll have lightning talks from Elasticsearch users Cogenta and Betfair and we’ll follow those with networking drinks until 18.30.


If you’re a fan of Drupal, don’t miss out on the session where our own David Pilato will speak at the Paris Drupal Meetup on June 18th at Microsoft Ventures. Doors open at 18:45.

Where in the world is Elasticsearch next week?

It’s going to be a quiet week on the conference and meet up front for us as the whole company will be converging on our HQ in Amsterdam for our annual all hands gathering. For those already in or surreptitiously visiting Amsterdam, we’ll be hosting drinks on Friday, June 27th at 18:00 in Cafe de Balie. You’ll have the chance to schmooze and kvetch with tons of our team members while enjoying delicious snacks and drinks. Want to join us? Simply sign up on our meetup page.

And remember, if you’re giving a talk, hosting a meetup or otherwise sharing the Elasticsearch love, let us know. We’d love to feature your knowledge sharing bits here!
