June Elasticsearch meetup at ThoughtWorks

Agenda: A talk by Sports195 followed by Q&A with Elasticsearch co-founder, Uri Boness, and Support Engineer, Binh Ly.

Karen Sun and team from Sports195 will discuss uses of Elasticsearch and provide a deep dive into their internal Scala Elasticsearch library which wraps the Java API. 

Use Cases

- Relationship/association retrieval and suggestions

- Text search

- News streams

- Entity matching

- Social site interactions

- Aggregations

Scala Library

 - making the Java api more "scala-like": mixins, composable queries, and typesafety

- AST generator for parsing string params into infinitely nestable filters/aggregations

- touch upon custom http client implementation to assist in major version upgrades

Food and beverages provided.

    Hi folks,

    Greetings from Amsterdam! I wish that I could join you this evening, but obviously it's a very long flight. :)

    Many thanks to ThoughtWorks for hosting us and to Sports195 for speaking tonight!

    If folks would let me know if they have photos or video to share, I would be grateful. You can just upload them to the meetup group or email them to me, whatever works best for you. If I have your permission to use these resources, we will look at featuring them in our weekly round up blog post, This Week in Elasticsearch. Here's a recent sample in case you are interested: http://www.elasticsearch.org/blog/2014-05-28-this-week-in-elasticsearch/

    Have a wonderful meetup! I will join you folks in person sooner rather than later.
