Elasticsearch Geospatial Capabilities at GrubHub

At GrubHub, our delivery couriers pick up and drop off food from many different restaurants operating in cities across the country.  In order to be able to do this efficiently, and to provide accurate information to our customers, we need to know how long its going to take for them to travel from point to point.  In this discussion, I'll look at how we are leveraging elasticsearch's geospatial capabilities to help us to solve this problem with scalability and performance in mind.  I'll discuss the concepts of geohashes and isochrones and look at how elasticsearch uses them for indexing and querying.

David Kuhn is a Software Engineer at GrubHub.  Primarily a Java and JavaScript developer, he's been recently using Python data libraries (sklearn, pandas, PySpark), to provide data and estimation models for production systems.  He's been working with elasticsearch closely for the past 6 months.

Going to step through the process of monitoring load balancers running HAProxy, from data collection to visualization using the Elastic Stack.

Andy Peckys is the Ops Tech Lead, Sr. DevOps Engineer, Sr. Frost Giant at Signal Inc. Seasoned technologist focusing on dealing with data at scale and distributed computing. Worked at startups, trading, banking, insurance and currently ad-tech.
