This is the first meeting of the group. It is organized by our friends at rangle ( (, so first of all Big Thanks to them. The meeting is intended for users who already have basic knowledge of elasticsearch. One of the most important features of elasticsearch is its ability to be schema-less. Schema-less doesn't necessarily mean that you can do without 'mappings' that drive and optimize your search functionality. What do you do when your 'document' contains dozens or hundreds of different fields: some are used for faceting/aggregations, some for sorting search results, some for free-text search and some for display only? The main presentation will address basic and advanced mapping options in elasticsearch and will explain how dynamic templates can simplify the mapping process of complex documents. There is an open slot for an additional presentation (please contact me), otherwise we will continue with an open discussion.
