Erickson Delgado Erickson Delgado is an enterprise architect who loves to mine and analyze data. He began using Splunk in version 4.0 and has pioneered the use of the application in his current work. In the earlier parts of his career, he worked with start-up companies in the Philippines to help build their open source infrastructure. He then worked in the cruise industry as a shipboard IT manager, and he loved it. From there, he was recruited to work at the company's headquarters as a software engineer. He has developed applications with Python and Node.js. He is interested in Go and is rediscovering programming with C/C++. He is crazy about visualization platforms and tools. In recent years, he has engaged himself with employing DevOps in his work. Since Erickson's routine evolves around technical practices, he blows off steam by saltwater fishing, mountain biking, crafting robots, and touring the country. He lives in Orlando.

As with any Software Product, Splunk has so many things to offer. It's often easy to get lost in the ocean of Splunk concepts and features and making it tough to master it. This book targets the most important concepts and tasks required for getting data into Splunk and generating insights from the data. It explains the most important and frequently used commands and tasks to build a solid base for readers to explore Splunk's operational intelligence capabilities.
It pretty much covers everything that a beginners/intermediate Splunk Developer needs to know. How to get data, how to search on it (and how to search on it more efficiently), how to report on it. It also covers some advanced topics like data models, HTTP event collector and custom D3 visualization using JS, making it a complete guide for Splunk Development.
I think readers will like this book's pace, explanation and will find examples very helpful.
This book contains everything a Splunk developer needs to start working on Splunk and saves some time to understand concepts easily.
Splunk Terminology, SPL commands.
I would say this book is a practical guide.
I give the book 5 * stars because the author does provide many examples, information about what to expect from a Splunk developer/Administrator.
