Do you have a good story?
We want to hear it.

If you have a good Elastic story to tell, we'd love for you to share it at
Elastic{ON}17 March 7–9, 2017.

We dig many topics and themes. Typically, we look for presentations featuring:

  • Use cases big or small, operational log analytics or embedded search, monitoring or mining, numbers or metrics. Really anything where you're pushing the Elastic Stack to known, new, or different heights.
  • Details on the business and technical journey of your project from concept to production and any stop along the way
  • Lessons learned, challenges encountered, and \o/ moments you’ve had in your development cycle
  • Best practices around Elastic products
  • Extensions, applications, and plugins built on, with, or for the Stack

Just like the Pirate Code, those points are more like guidelines than actual rules. So if you think you have a good story, fill in the form below as we’re eager to read more about it.

The way I became an Elasticsearch expert was through training and support. I have a good search background and a lot of experience, but there's still a lot of value in the support for me. It continues to pay off.
