Myles Young
I am a father and husband with a passion for tech. I have large-scale enterprise IT experience in network security, agile development, middleware, QA, system reliability engineering, and data infrastructure engineering. I have worked in DevOps for most of my IT career with a focus on using automation and big data technologies for operational analytics and log aggregation to further support CI/CD pipelines. I have a great appreciation for distributed systems and finding non-obvious answers in mountains of data. I am excited to be working at Linux Academy where I get to share what I've learned with our awesome students!

Details

This course is for those new to the Elastic Stack to get an introductory overview of its core services (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Beats), features, terms, and basic administration. This course will follow a real-world use case of setting up a log aggregation pipeline for web access logs and analyzing said logs with Kibana via search, visualizations, and dashboards.
