About this event

Elastic London Revival

Welcome back to Elastic London Meetup! Our May session will be hosted at the Elastic Office at 5 Southampton Street, just off The Strand. Doors open at 18:00 for pizza, drinks & networking. Talks start at 18:30.


  • You have plenty of Open Office, Microsoft Office, PDF, images... documents and you may want to be able to search for their metadata and content. How can you do that?

    In this talk, David Pilato, Developer Evangelist at Elastic will explain how Apache Tika can be used for that and how to combine this fantastic library with Elastic Stack.

  • Mark Harwood, former Developer at Elastic, was an early contributor to both Lucene and Elasticsearch contributing features such as highlighting, XML query parsers, nested documents, significant terms aggregation, graph, annotated text, accelerated regex and more.

    His talk focuses on the ubiquitous "search box" and the many limitations it has on the users' search experience. A demo will show a more graphical way of querying using Boolean logic which can both simplify and enhance search capabilities.

This event precedes ElasticON Public Sector: UK&I, our free public sector event taking place on May 18th. For full details and to signup please check out the event page for full details.
