Solenix Workshop - The Elastic Stack20 December 2016

For our December workshop, we went through the functionalities and benefits of using the Elastic Stack (formerly the ELK Stack).

This free and open-source set of tools provides the ability to collect, store and visualise data from any source. It is particularly useful to synthesize big amounts of data into one comprehensible dashboard, allowing its users to quickly extract relevant information out of data. The Elastic Stack consists of four different components: a dashboard (Kibana), a database (ElasticSearch) and two data collectors (Logstash and Beats).

Solenix Workshop - Spring Boot11 October 2016

During our latest regular Solenix Workshop we had a thorough look at Spring Boot and how it can benefit us in our current and future software projects.

Spring Boot allows creating rich application launchers harnessing the full power of the Spring framework. It allows us to create self-contained applications, which bring all the necessary utensils, including web servers, database connectors, etc. in a single package and a single process. As usual with the Spring framework, Spring Boot makes using sophisticated features much easier.
