Elastic Meetup with Tubular Labs & Elastic{ON} Recap

Silicon Valley

Apr 7, 2017, 1:00 – 4:00 AM


About this event

Join us for our first meetup after Elastic{ON} 2017, we'll have two talks for the night starting at 6:30pm –– doors will open at 6pm. We'll have food, beverages, and good conversation! 


And while you're at it... Come learn how Tubular Labs analyzes billions of engagements to provide real-time audience insights with Elasticsearch.

Tubular Labs ingests billions of user interactions with online video content (likes, comments, shares, etc.) from all major video platforms, and uses that data to power various types of audience analysis.  We'll present how we leveraged Elasticsearch's powerful query language, augmented with the graph API from X-Pack, to breathe new life into one of our core products that shows what other channels or videos audience members also watch, given a set of seed channels or videos.  By constructing a schema tailored to let Elasticsearch do the heavy lifting, we are able to support a rich query paradigm with dynamic filters (that might target a particular time range or specific demographic), and surface thousands of results within seconds, providing with each result a variety of core metrics like overlap percentage, affinity index and audience size comparisons.  That this data resides in Elasticsearch also enables us to trivially construct visualizations in Kibana, which give us deeper out-of-the-box insight than would other storage options.

Scott Strickland spent almost 10 years engineering at Advertising.com, building out distributed optimization & adserving platforms prior to joining Tubular Labs in March of 2016.  This move represented a fundamental shift in paradigm towards more of a data-centric role, and as such he is an expert in neither data science nor Elasticsearch (though maybe that is a testament to the technology).  Scott is a C++ developer at heart, but finds himself working mostly with Python these days, and is somewhat concerned about losing his touch with template metaprogramming, or that C++17 will finally be released without him noticing.  He’s a fan of and enjoys playing music, baseball, and (on occasion) video games, and is happy to have a beer with you and talk about stuff.
