Brief Overview

Logging is something practically every computer does in some form or another. Typically logs are lines of unstructured plain text designed for humans to consume. Unfortunately this comes at a price: difficult machine consumption, aka: log parsing. Let's look at how we can revolutionise your logging infrastructure via the powerful ELK stack and Serilog.


In this talk we will take a look at how we can say move on from looking through streams of dull logs and instead turbo-boost your logging infrastructure by utilising the powerful ELK (ElasticSearch, LogStash and Kibana) stack coupled with structured logging, making your logs easier to navigate, search and track down pesky bugs, helping you discover those time critical production issues.
