Instruct and Chris Tite are delighted to announce another event providing technical training in Durban to the local community, Mining your Log files with the ELK Stack to be held on 1 August 2018 at Kaleidocode's office in Durban.
Log files hold a vault of useful information for operations as well as business.
Processing your log files could reveal a host of useful information.
Register your place here.
We’ll cover some Docker Compose basics to get you started with a simple ELK stack (Elastic Search, Log Stash and Kibana), configure some endpoints and setup log shipping (for Linux and Windows) so that we can process log files.
Once we’re processing logs, we’ll look at ways to transform and embellish our log data to add IT operational, as well as business value. Using our transformed data, we’ll also cover visualising the data using Kibana.
To close out we’ll also consider alternative technologies such as Prometheus and Grafana, and discuss the pros and cons of the different technologies.
Mining log files has never been so simple. Join me to see how easy it is to get started.

A Kaleidocode team attended AWS Summit 2018 last week in Cape Town. It was a very well supported event, with delegates from around the country and Africa making it to the convention centre.
There was a broad array of international and local speakers covering best practice and the latest advances on the AWS platform.
Some of the areas that were covered were; Aurora Serverless, EKS for managing Kubernetes on AWS, and AWS Pinpoint for mobile.
There was a large number of breakout sessions that covered Containers, Security, IOT, and Advanced Architecture. One interesting session detailed how to build scalable and resilient applications in the cloud by applying practices such as event driven and server less architectures coupled with database sharding and read write separation.
All in all a valuable and instructive event. Consider getting down to the 2019 edition if you can spare the time, well worth the flight.
