An introduction to the search tool Elasticsearch. We will review the general use case, how to think about using ES, how to tune it, and architectural patterns for implementing.
I'm a huge fan of sharing knowledge. I wouldn't be here today if it hadn't been for the giving nature of the Internet when I was coming up. Now that I've spent 18 years practicing professionally I enjoy taking time to give back to this community that has done so much for me. If you want to talk about technology or business, search or type systems I'm here to learn and share.
For the last two years, I have been focused on helping to run over 20k clusters of Elasticsearch. From turning our Linux kernel, to selecting AWS instance types I have been hip deep in the operational side of Elasticsearch. Additionally, I work with our customers to help them tune their own queries and their general approach to search.
