Talk Details

Adding Elasticsearch To An Existing .NET / SQL Server Application presented by Craig Lebowitz of NGP VAN

Craig will demonstrate how NGP VAN added Elasticsearch on top of an existing .NET/SQL Server application to improve its search capabilities.  He will focus on how changed data in the RDBMS flows into the index in near real time and how Elasticsearch supports multitenancy. Craig will show how to apply this approach to any application using SQL Server.

Craig is enterprise architect at NGP VAN and has been advocating and using Elasticsearch for the past nine months.  NGP VAN's web applications are used by progressive political campaigns of all sizes: from Joe for Dog Catcher to Barack Obama for President.
