About this event

Join us for a talk from Elastic's two lead .NET developers, Greg Marzouka and Martijn Laarman, food and drink at this April meetup!
6:30 PM- 7:00 PM: Food and Drink
7:00 PM-8:30 PM: Talk, Demos, and Q&A!

Abstract: Elasticsearch for .NET Developers: A whirlwind dive into the strongly-typed client for .NET Elasticsearch offers a simple REST interface that exposes JSON, so a .NET developer might be tempted to simply use HttpClient and Json.NET to talk with Elasticsearch.

In this talk we'll showcase, through the usage of LINQPad, some of the features that outline how NEST plays to C# strengths and helps you write terser code, all just one line of code away: new ElasticClient(). A few of the topics that we'll cover:

- Strongly-typed requests and responses - Inference- Query DSL- Aggregations- Covariant result sets- Connection pooling and failover

Attendees will leave this talk knowing how to fully tame Elasticsearch from .NET
