# Talks

## An operational view of Elasticsearch (How to scale Elasticsearch to the size of Wikipedias) by Guillaume Lederrey (Wikimedia)

If you have not entirely sold your soul to Google, you might have noticed a search box on the top right corner of Wikipedias [0]. You might have even wondered at what's behind it. Spoiler: it's Elasticsearch.

Guillaume is going to give an overview of how full text search works for Wikipedias. You will learn what it takes to make Elasticsearch work for a top 5 website in 200 > languages. From the basic principles of full text search, to the scalability issues of a large site, with stop in how to design a resilient search cluster.

## Introduction to Elastic APM by Benjamin Wohlwend

With the release of the Elastic Stack 6.3, Elastic APM (application performance monitoring) officially joined the growing family of Elastic products. In this talk, we'll have a look at what Elastic APM does, how to set it up, and what new features are available in 6.5. If the demo gods smile upon us, we'll even have a quick look at how to instrument a webapp in practice.
