We will have two speakers at our next meetup. We will be hearing from Doug Turnbull and Igor Motov. Bios and topics are below. Hope to see everyone there!
Our First Speaker, Doug Turnbull, is an Elasticsearch consultant for OpenSource Connections and author of Relevant Search. Doug helps clients deliver smarter, contextually aware, and personalized search applications. Doug loves building tools to help with search relevancy, including Quepid, Splainer and Elyzer.
In his talk, you'll get an overview of search engine internals and learn how to turn Elasticsearch into a smart comparison powerhouse for your organization. Far more than just a full-text search engine, Elasticsearch can be used to detect at-risk students, predict the weather, and find similar images at high scale.
Our second speaker will be Igor Motov. Igor is a software developer on the Elasticsearch core team based out of the Greater Boston area. Prior to joining Elastic, Igor worked on search solutions for companies ranging from small startups to large corporations.
Igor’s talk will be about Elastic Stack 5.0. With version 5.0, all of the Elastic products will be aligned, tested, and released together — and known by their new names: the Elastic Stack, X-Pack, and Elastic Cloud. In this talk, we will cover new features, breaking changes and migration strategy for the next major release.
As always, food and drinks will be provided. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
