For those of you that don’t know me:
Hi, my name is Ricardo and I’m a Principal Developer Advocate at Elastic—the company behind the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash) where I do community advocacy for North America. After +20 years of experience I may have learned a thing or two about Distributed Systems, Databases, Streaming Data, and Big Data. Before Elastic I did work for other vendors such as Confluent, Oracle, and Red Hat, and for different consulting firms. These days I spend most of my time making developers fall in love with technology.
While not working I love to barbecue in my backyard with my family and friends, where I get the chance to talk about anything that is not IT related. I live in North Carolina, USA with my wife and son. Follow me on Twitter: @riferrei
