The State of the Community

The State of the Community

This talk was presented at the inaugural Elastic{ON} conference, http://elasticon.com

Session Abstract:
in this presentation, you'll hear from our Director of Developer Relations on all things community & the ELK Stack. You'll learn where your fellow users are, how they are contributing and and plans for the community's future. Plus, we'll show some amazing stats using our community metrics ELK dashboards.

You'll leave this session with a solid understanding of how you can contribute to the ELK community and how you - and your company - can benefit from doing so.
