We had to make a slight change to this meetup as we had a conflict here at Fuse (and I lost).  We’ll be meeting on Thursday this time instead of Tuesday.


Kibana, Timelion, and Graph API: Three ways to explore data within Elasticsearch – Nick Drost from Elastic

Kibana: Intuitively discover meaningful insights into your data, in near real- time. In this scenario we will show how you can use the power of search and analytics to deep dive into web logs investigate what’s interesting. Oh, yeah, dark themed dashboards are back.

Timelion: Taking time series data in Elasticsearch and Kibana to the next level.

Graph API: Explore interesting connections in your data using Elasticsearch Graph API. This is a pre-release feature where we can use the power of Elasticsearch relevancy to tune into the useful signals of your data.

No experience with Elasticsearch is needed. Just bring your curiosity to explore data!
