Here's Delhi-NCR JUG's another interesting meetup!
This time around, we dived into Kotlin with Ashish Krishnan (@ashishkrishnan) where he covered the basics of Kotlin and it's features. The audience tried comparing Kotlin with Java and slowly understood the idea of mutual co-existence.
Post it, we got an Introduction over ELK Stack by Chhavnish Mittal (@ChhMittal), where we got to know what ELK Stack is and tried to understand it's basics.
Session 1: Dive into Kotlin
Kotlin as a language has a lot of similarities to Java in structure — it's object-oriented, concise, type-safe, and designed for similar problems that Java solves with fewer NPEs. It is interoperable with Java, it brings in nice-to-have features out-of-box over Java with a functional programming flavour. It opens doors for other Java-like frameworks on the server, mobile, and browsers. In this session of 45 minutes, we dived into the basics of Kotlin and its features, comparison to Java and slowly understood the idea of mutual co-existence.
Session 2: Introduction to ELK Stack
The ELK stack consists of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Although they've all been built to work exceptionally well together, each one is a separate project that is driven by the open-source vendor Elastic—which itself began as an enterprise search platform vendor. It has now become a full-service analytics software company, mainly because of the success of the ELK stack. The session covered the basics of ELK stack for a kickstart.
