The Splunk SDK contains library code and examples designed to enable developers to build applications using Splunk. With the Splunk SDK for Ruby developers can write Ruby applications to programmatically interact with the Splunk engine. The SDK is built on top of the REST API, providing a wrapper over the REST API endpoints. The Ruby SDK enables developers to search data, run saved searches, work with search jobs, manage Splunk configurations and objects, integrate search results into applications, log directly to Splunk, and to present a custom UI.
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the O’Reilly Strata Conference in New York City, and sat in on a very important keynote from Drew Conway and Jake Porway about their project, Data Without Borders.
Data Without Borders is looking to match non-profits in need of data analysis with freelance and pro bono data scientists who can work to help them with data collection, analysis, visualization, or provide decision support.
