Cloudy with a chance of scale

Ever wondered what it would be like to leverage virtual computing with an ElasticSearch datastore? I did, so I setup an instance to power an internal crawler. Here is my story.

Mitch Pirtle comes to Capital One from the startup scene, Mitch has been founding companies and FOSS projects for the past two decades. His entrepreneurial involvement includes Apple, Sun, Sequent (now IBM), ClassMates,com, Starbucks, Microsoft, MTV, Food Networks, Gilt, National Geographic, Sesame Workshop, and MongoDB. He's most known on the Open Source side for founding the Joomla! content management system, as well as contributing to MongoDB, Li3, and many other libraries and frameworks. His tech background is that of a true polyglot: PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, MongoDB, Redis, Node.js, and all UNIX variants. An active international speaker, Mitch talks often about developer workflow, automation, growth, and change.

Elastic 5.0 is here

Elastic 5.0 has new features across the stack for every one of our users. In this talk, I'll present highlights in elasticsearch,logstash, and kibana and showcase the holistic, integrated, more awesome experience that is 5.0!

Matt Isett is currently working at Elastic as a Federal Solutions Architect. I have 11 years of software engineering experience covering distributed computing, Data Science and architectural development. Discovering elasticsearch over 3 years ago; I set out on a voyage to solve challenging problems and have fun!
