    Room: D132

    Ever have a need to search, analyze, or visualize your data? If you have, and you want to learn about one of the hottest open source set of tools in that space, join me for a whirlwind tour through the Elasticsearch ecosystem.

    We'll spend time:

    • Talking about Elasticsearch - what it is and what it can do,
    • Getting a high level view of what an Elasticsearch cluster is and how it's arranged,
    • Walking through a variety of summaries and demos, including:
      • Searching,
      • Indexing,
      • Mapping,
      • Analysis (in the context of full-text search),
      • and Aggregates.
    • Talking a bit about the ELK stack (Elasticsearch + Logstash + Kibana)
    • Wrapping things up with coverage of some of the resources available to move forward with Elasticsearch.
