When I joined Elastic (formerly Elasticsearch) it was a startup with 10 employees + the founders. As one of those first employees I was invited (with #elkie and my wife) to the NYSE event where Elastic went listed as
Some of us there (Rashid, Karel, Myself, Igor, Costin, Luca, Clinton). Yeah. You are not probably used to see us wearing a suit! :)
If you want to read again my story, it’s there:
- January 2013: Once upon a time…
- January 2014: Once upon a time: a year later…
- January 2015: Once upon a time: Make your dreams come true
- January 2016: 3 years! Time flies!
- January 2017: 4 years at elastic!
- January 2018: 5 years. What a milestone!
Before speaking about what happened last year, I’d like to modify the way I’m ingesting my personal data in elasticsearch by using the real city name when I’m speaking in France. Why this? Because anytime I’m speaking in Paris or suburbs, I’m actually writing
Paris in my report which is inaccurate.
Instead, I’d really like to have the real city name… How can I do this? Well, I do have the exact geo location points of each event (which is something I’m writing manually for now)… If you are a frequent visitor of this blog, that should ring a bell, right?
In 2018, I wrote some blog posts about transforming geo points to exact address:
- Importing Bano dataset with Logstash
- Using Logstash to lookup for addresses in Bano index
- Using Logstash to enrich an existing dataset with Bano
Let’s use that now!
