Elastic 5.0 or Bust: Migration Strategies - Elastic LA and Linux LA Joint Meetup

Los Angeles

Feb 9, 2017, 3:00 – 6:00 AM


About this event

Come join us at the Elastic LA and Linux LA for a joint meetup at Q Connections in LA.  

Elastic Stack is already at v5.2, if you haven't already migrated then its time to start planning.  This talk will cover strategies to move from v1.7 to v2.x then v5.2 while utilizing the new features in 2.x and 5.x to make the migration as seamless as possible with no downtime.

If you are an Elastic Stack user, not matter what level, you won't want to miss this meetup. 


Parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street (6081 Center Dr.) for about $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6100 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.


There is a security desk in the lobby, they will need to let you in the elevator to Q’s office in suite 660

Talk #1 Abstract:

I was talking to myself above. My only complaint about Elastic is trying to keep up with their releases.  I plan on making this an interactive talk as I share my strategy for the upgrade path from 1.7 to 5.x.
