In a previous post, Today Was a Good Day, I mentioned that I gave a talk entitled, “How Kevy Uses Elasticsearch to Build Real-time Reporting” at the July meeting of the Atlanta Ruby Users Group (ATLRUG). It was my first technical talk in front of an audience of other software engineers. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the faces in the crowd during my time at Big Nerd Ranch. Faces that I’ve looked up to in my never-ending journey as a software engineer. I look forward to giving more talks about how Kevy is revolutionizing eCommerce marketing with tools like Elasticsearch.
I shared the slides (with speaker notes) from the talk below. If you have any questions about how Kevy uses Elasticsearch, reach out to me.
Documenting the Twitter reaction reminds me of how amazingly supportive everyone was:
