This post covers the basics about elasticsearch API. It’s the natural continuation of the previous posts about running an ELK environment and configuring Logstash. Elasticsearch, according to the official documentation is: Elasticsearch is a highly scalable open-source full-text search and analytics engine. It allows you to store, search, and analyze big volumes of data quickly and in near real time. In the ELK stack, elasticsearch is in charge of storing the logs (sent by logstash) and providing search features through an API.

Previously on IX piweek: Using docker to have an ELK environment up & running. In this post we are going to check in more detail how to configure logstash. The first thing we want to do (as we saw in the previous post) is to tell docker where our configuration files are. volumes: - ./logstash/config:/etc/logstash/conf.d In this directory, we may have one or more config files. In our example, we have several:

Yesterday started the Piweek IX, 9 times showing what a small company can do about innovation. Twice a year. You can follow us on twitter. For this edition, I left aside my tradicional taste for Arduino and wanted to try a well known technology for monitorization (ELK). And I was very happy to know that my colleague Alex wanted to be part of the experiment. As usual, I’m trying to build some useful information out from my learning process, so here you have a serie of posts about how to run ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana).

VIII PIWEEK

This past week, I was completely absorbed by the PIWeek. This is the 8th edition, and we still feel motivated when starts the PIWeek. Participants are still exhausted after the 5 days, and of course, happy! All the even editions coincide (not by chance) with the anniversary of Kaleidos. Happy 4th b-day for all of us!! You can check pictures and interviews (in spanish) in our Piweek tumblr. This year, I made a team with awsome colleages: Pablo (@pabloalba), Miguel (@mgdelacroix), Laura (@laurapareja), and me fromed the team ZOMBIE TIME!

Some important things about Kosdem: - all employees are meant to be there.

ArchLinux installation

Two years ago (TWO YEARS!! auch) I wrote this tutorial of Archlinux installation (in Spanish). At that time, I kept using MBR instead of GPT (recommended). Some weeks ago, Kaleidos renewed our computers, so I had to install ArchLinux again. It happened I tried several times before finding the “key” (dammed key!). So here is a new brand tutorial to install Archlinux with GPT to save some of your precious time.

Piweek as a service

Dentro de poco comenzará la séptima edición de la PIWeek de Kaleidos y para esta edición me he decidido a intentar un formato un poco distinto. ¡Sigue leyendo! Normalmente la decisión del proyecto es totalmente libre, y nos inspiramos en lo que tenemos a mano; en mi caso: un puñado de backend developers, aderezados o alienados más bien por maquetadores y nuestro último fichaje, Juan, un diseñador que comparte con los anteriores el gusto por intentar llevar al extremo las herramientas que usa normalmente.

Jornada de coincidencia

Hoy me ha tocado reincorporarme al trabajo tras tres semanas de vacaciones. Ni que decir tiene que apenas me acordaba de mi contraseña, o de la dirección de la oficina XD A mi vuelta me he encontrado con que desde el 1 de septiembre hemos puesto en marcha dos medidas nuevas relativas a nuestros horarios en Kaleidos: - pasamos de la opción de teletrabajar 2 días a 3. Las restricciones básicas se mantienen: lunes y viernes estamos en la ofi todos juntos, y podemos aprovechar para las sesiones de todos, para vernos las caras y para favorecer un tejido transversal (además del que se genera en los equipos).

Hace unos años fui por primera vez a la Euskal animada y acompañada por compañeros de Kaleidos. De aquella ocasión volví diciendo: “no me volvéis a pillar viva para algo así”. Bien, pues seis años después sigo yendo, y el evento me sigue encantando :D. Fotaza de la Euskal por la noche, cogida de: http://www.arenazero.net/noticias/euskal-encounter-22-anunciada La Euskal no es un evento; son muchos eventos en realidad: uno para los aficionados a la retroinformática, otro para los aficionados a la robótica; y sigue: programación, anime, juegos masivos online, torneos de videojuegos… Hay concursos de programación, de escritura, de cocina rápida, de comer ramen picante, de cosplay y de talentos.
