We will be having two talks by community members, catering to audience of varying tech skills.

Talk 1: Building a COVID-19 Dashboard for Non-Programmers

We will use Kibana to build a Covid-19 dashboard using the "Upload CSV" feature.

The dashboard will feature tables, bar charts, line graphs and pie charts.

We will use existing publicly available data and show easy it is to build and share dashboards

Talk 2: Inside the COVID-19 data

Afterwards, we will talk about the internals of Elasticsearch and how to use a simple script to parse data online, define mappings and populate a time based index

This will be followed up by building a simple dashboard similar to Talk 1 and publishing it embedded in an external webpage online



We are planning to run regular online meetups, scheduled in the Asia Pacific time zone. We welcome talks on any aspect of data exploration! If you are keen in presenting, just drop us a note or email us at
