Talk 1 - Using your relational database with the ELK stack

Ever wanted to know all about using your relational database with the ELK stack? Tal Levy, developer on the Logstash team, is here to help! In this presentation, Tal will cover how to ingest data from your database using the new Logstash JDBC plugin. He will also explore how to transform your data for seamless visualization in Kibana, and share strategies on how to keep Elasticsearch indices up-to-date with your database. Tal will conclude with a demo bringing everything together to ingest, visualize, and learn from Musicbrainz music data.

Tal Levy is a software engineer working on the Logstash team building out new features and integrations. When he is not clickclacking on his keyboard, you can find him cycling and climbing.

Talk 2 - How Elasticsearch solved Totango's challenges

Totango relies on Elasticsearch as its serving layer.
We faced serious performance and stability issues as the company client base grew so we had to improve things.
This talk describes the challenges Totango faced and how it resolved those challenges.
You will learn about Elasticsearch's doc values, routing, preferences and more and gain better understanding of how to resolve performance and stability issues

Ron Sher had been leading the backend team at Totango since May 2014. Ron is a very experienced developer and team lead in both big companies like Microsoft and startups like Gigya and others
Ron's experience spans Big Data systems as well as Web Services, Security and more.
Ron takes a very active part in the team's development efforts. You'll always find Ron either coding or reviewing someone else's code.
