About this event

We're happy to announce the next Elastic meetup at Making Waves on September 6.

We will have a talk from Tallak Hellebust from Making Waves and we will have two Elastic speakers, Tobias Karlsson (Solutions Architect) and Philipp Krenn (Developer Advocate).

There will be food and beverages at 6:30pm. The talks starts at 7:00pm

Title: Your personal, fast and scalable supermarket on the Internet.

The web based supermarket revolution has started in Norway, but the traditional grocery retailers have held back until now. NorgesGruppen and MENY is the first major player to enter the promising online Norwegian grocery retail market. A custom made solution built on Elasticsearch brings vast amounts of data and insights to the user in real-time, in order to provide a fast and relevant user experience. This talk will cover the technical architecture, what kind of content we have in our indices and how we use relevancy and personalization to help users find “their” groceries.

He loves working in the intersection of technology and business, helping customers apply relevant technology to solve their business challenges. For the last couple of years he has been focused on solving large scale, near real-time problems with distributed systems. 

Title: Analyzing network data with Packetbeat and Elasticsearch


By using Elastic Packetbeat we can now easily acquire network packet data and feed this into Elasticsearch for further analysis. In this talk we will look at how to acquire this data and how we can use Kibana to gain insights.
