Elastic VIRTUAL Triangle User Group June Meetup- Aggregations and go-elasticsearch


Jun 4, 2020, 8:00 – 9:30 PM


About this event

Presentation and Speaker- Aggregations:

Nik Everett is a full time contributor to Elasticsearch and works from his basement in Raleigh. Before they closed he also used to work from hipster coffee shops around Raleigh. He misses fancy coffee but doesn't miss their typically terrible internet access.

Nik will talk about how Elasticsearch executes aggregations and the tradeoffs it makes. Expect to hear a little about how Elasticsearch stores its data with an emphasis on the columnar data structures used by aggregations. Expect to hear about how Elasticsearch executes search with an emphasis on the way it collects aggregation data and merges it to provide useful results.

Presentation and Speaker- go-elasticsearch:


Jeff Moore is a Systems Engineer at Bandwidth with a focus on administering and extending Kubernetes, AWS, and the Elastic Stack to support internal customer use-cases. Originally a die-hard Kubernetes fan, his passions have now also extended to the Elastic Stack due to insights of the amazing things that can be done with well-architected data. He has lived in Raleigh for most of his life and currently has a love/hate relationship with the factory automation game Factorio. Jeff is a Certified Kubernetes Administrator with plans to complete the Elastic Certified Engineer exam.


In this talk, Jeff will talk about how he designed a command-line tool built on the go-elasticsearch project - making interactions with the elasticsearch APIs much easier. He will also go into the inspirations of the project, lessons learned, and future work.
