About this event

Edlio Fun Fact! In 2012, while working as a consultant at Edlio, I launched a production ELK Stack. At that time, Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana were three separate open source projects. Back then simple wasn't so simple, more like furniture assembly instructions from IKEA.

Tonight's talk will demonstrate how simple it is to get start with Elastic Sample Data either locally with docker or launching a cluster in Elastic Cloud.
