Grab a tasty beverage of your choice from the comfort of your home and join Elastic for a virtual happy hour. During our time together we'll kick it off with two great talks:

Talk1: Elastic Cloud: Deploy, Ingest, Visualize by Amitai Porat: Ingesting data to visualization

Talk2: Yelp’s Elasticsearch 7 Upgrade: Challenges and Lessons by Sarthak Nandi

This talk shares the lessons we have learned from upgrading our Elasticsearch-based search backend that powers business search to Elasticsearch 7. We will start with an overview of Yelp’s Ranking Platform and then move to some of our custom scoring and deployment requirements. We’ll also share the challenges we faced during the upgrade and how we handled them.
