OpenLate provides an evening hack lounge with themed tech talks at the OpenDNS office. Tonight, Shaunak Kashyap from Elasticsearch will present "Elasticsearch for SQL users".
Synopsis of the talk:
Most developers are familiar with relational databases and its query language, SQL. We know how to model our data so it can fit the relational paradigm and we know how to query this relational data using SQL.
Elasticsearch is a document store with its own query DSL. In this talk we will look at several well-understood concepts and SQL queries from the relational paradigm and map these to their Elasticsearch equivalents.
