Fast Search Applications Development   

Getting calculated data can be difficult, especially if the calculation is based on the user input in any web application. SQL queries can solve most of our problems in getting data easily, but they lack enough power to perform intricate calculations with large amounts of results at acceptable speeds. It can also be difficult to start a calculation with SQL if it is has too many parameters. SQL does not always perform well enough for today’s web and mobile applications.  

The main advantage of Elasticsearch is that its query design is fairly simple to understand and you can quickly start implementing it in your project even if you are new to it. Elasticsearch also finds data more quickly from large datasets, so much so that adding detailed calculations on top of the results is much more simple and fast. Thus, it is much more adapted to the current technology than regular SQL.   

Edgar is originally from Argentina. He started developing little video games for fun with flash Action Script at the age of 13. Even though, he studied graphic design as a career, he always liked programming. From graphic design he shifted to web design, and he started making websites as a freelance designer and from there he started programming again. He's been a web developer from more than 6 years and a mobile developer for a year. The programming languages he knows how to develop are PHP, Javascript, and Python. He also works with several frameworks such as Laravel, Angular, Ionic, Flask, React, and Django.


Elastic will be at the AWS Summit in New York on August 11, booth 123. We’ll have subject matter experts there who can demo and talk to a variety of subjects including:

• New releases like Graph, which allows you to query and visualize meaningful relationships

•  Spinning up a hosted Elasticsearch cluster in a matter of minutes using Elastic Cloud on AWS.

• Scaling and configuring Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana

The event is free, so come with questions - we love a good query!
