I'm new to Elasticsearch. Will this event be good for me?

Totally. No matter if you are a novice or an old pro, there’s something for everyone at SEARCH.

What is Elasticsearch?

The world is swimming in data. For years we have been simply overwhelmed by the quantity of data flowing through and produced by our systems. Existing technology has focused on how to store and structure warehouses full of data. That’s all well and good—until you actually need to make decisions in real time informed by that data.

Elasticsearch is a real-time distributed search and analytics engine. It allows you to explore your data at a speed and at a scale never before possible. It is used for full-text search, structured search, analytics, and all three in combination:

Wikipedia uses Elasticsearch to provide full-text search with highlighted search snippets, and search-as-you-type and did-you-mean suggestions.The Guardian uses Elasticsearch to combine visitor logs with social -network data to provide real-time feedback to its editors about the public’s response to new articles.Stack Overflow combines full-text search with geolocation queries and uses more-like-this to find related questions and answers.Netflix uses it for personalized recommendation and search millions of videos.GitHub uses Elasticsearch to query 130 billion lines of code.

Can I bring a friend?

Sure... Everyone is welcome! Just make sure you register for all attendees you plan to bring with you before Tuesday, 02/14/17.

Will there be food?

Yes! We will have a yummy selection of pizzas and beverages to help keep your energy and focus on the great technology content and networking opportunity.
