Change of plans. We're back at Tech Square Labs!
We will have two great speakers from Elastic to review and demo what's new in Elastic 6.0. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
Kent Brake is a Solutions Architect based in Richmond, VA. At Elastic, Kent works with DoD and commercial partners with a focus on security analytics. Before joining elastic, Kent spent 9 years building Cloudmark based messaging security with customers like AT&T, Facebook and Fireeye.
AJ Pahl is a Solutions Architect based in Atlanta, GA. AJ recently joined Elastic and brings over 20 years of IT experience from both automotive and financial industries.
6.0 is coming
To help our awesome community prepare we will be doing a run through of the major changes that will land with the Elastic Stack in 6.0.
We have things like rolling-major version upgrades, even more Lucene data structure optimisations, sequence IDs, saying farewell to _types, dashboard modes, automated cluster alerts, Logstash pipelines and a pipeline viewer, Beats integration with kubernetes and a whole raft of new Beats modules.
Our Pioneer Program also makes a return, so if you are already using the beta releases of the stack and are submitting issues, you're a winner!
