One Startup's Use of Geospatial Searching with Elasticsearch

Shout to Me is a San Diego startup in the process of building an audio-based social networking platform.  Part of the technology includes geospatial searching so that users only  receive "shouts" from other nearby users.  In this talk we will see how the Shout to Me team ended up with Elasticsearch despite having an initial start and reaching subsequent limitations with a NoSQL database and a competing search index.  In addition we will look at some of the actual code evolution that took place. 

Speaker bio: Tracy Rojas is a Developer and Co-founder of Shout to Me, an audio based social networking platform.  He has worked in the San Diego software community for almost 20 years.  His main expertise is in Internet based applications and services.  He has worked in companies ranging from ground floor startups to large corporations.  Tracy has a B.S. in Finance and an M.S.B.A. in Information Systems, both from San Diego State University.
