Talk #2 Abstract: Deep Dive into Kibana Internals

On the Kibana team, we believe that a clear UI and smooth UX is vital for our users' success. Underlying that UI is UI code which must also be clear and easy to work with, so that plugin developers and open-source contributors can add features quickly. In this talk, I'll pop the hood and discuss some of the internals of our UI development process: the challenges we face, how we're addressing them, and what you can expect in the future. Questions welcome!

Speaker #2 Bio: 

CJ Ceniza is on Kibana Product Team at Elastic. He is a UI and UX fanatic, and loves building things that people can use. He uses his background in design and software engineering to improve the Kibana UI and the code which powers it.
