Elastic{ON} Kickoff


February 28, 2018 by Mike Hillwig

I’m currently in San Francisco for Elasitc{ON}, the Elastic Stack user conference.

Monday and Tuesday were preconference training classes. I sat through Developer 1. This was an impressive class. Our trainers came from a mix of their education, consulting, and support groups. There was always someone who could answer a question.

Yesterday afternoon was the conference keynote with Shay Banon, the founder of Elasticsearch. What impressed me was that Shay and all of the employees were so passionate about the technology. They really believe in what they’re doing. Every demo wasn’t just showing the technology. Instead, they put everything into a use case.

Today is the first full day of the conference. Having been to so many PASS Summits in the past, I’m kind of excited being a stranger here. I get to enjoy the conference as an attendee and not part of the community.
