We have a super dooper, amazingly special workshop coming up this month for all our local C#/.Net fans. Full details below!
Russ Cam (@forloop) and Martijn Laarman (@mpdreamz), two Elastic engineers that work on all things Microsoft at Elastic, are both in Sydney for the NDC conference at the start of August and so we are taking the opportunity to do something for the local .NET community.
They will be running a free half-day hands-on workshop on Elasticsearch with .NET, providing instruction as well as materials to follow along with, focusing on building out an example web application that utilizes Elasticsearch, to provide;
• Autocompletion across a catalogue of items via a single search bar interface
• Aggregations for faceted information about a catalogue
• Paging through a catalogue
As part of this, they'll be discussing indexing, mappings, aliases and analysis, as well as touch on the Query DSL and Aggregations. In addition, attendees are more than welcome to also ask any technical questions related to Elasticsearch as well :)
If you've never used Elasticsearch with .NET then it would be a good introduction and, if you are already familiar, there's likely to be a few nuggets of wisdom to take away too.
