Join us for a student bootcamp series exploring the Elastic stack and its practical uses. You'll learn the basic architecture of Elastic, how to perform CRUD operations with Elasticsearch and Kibana and how to fine-tune your search results. Finally, you'll create a fast React web application utilizing Elastic Cloud and Elastic Enterprise Search. See how quickly you can get set up, ingest data, discover the search interface, and analyze and tune a search engine for your needs. Participants who attend all three sessions will receive an official Certificate of Completion and will be entered to win Elastic swag!
Part 1: Intro to Elasticsearch and Kibana
In life, we are always in search of something. Whether we are in search of the meaning of life or the most delicious tacos in town, we heavily rely on search engines to get the answers. You may already use apps such as Yelp, Uber, or Wikipedia on a daily basis. But did you know that these apps were built with Elasticsearch?
Elasticsearch is known as the heart of the Elastic Stack, which consists of Beats, Logstash, Elasticsearch, and Kibana. The Elastic Stack allows us to take data from any source, in any format, then search, analyze, and visualize it in real time. If you are a developer who is looking to make data usable in real time and at scale, Elasticsearch and Kibana are great tools to have on your belt.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Understand a use case of Elasticsearch and Kibana
- Understand the basic architecture of Elasticsearch
- Perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations with Elasticsearch and Kibana
