“Not knowing how near the truth is, we seek it far away.”

Today, when we sit on on a huge pile of unstructured data, it is essential to build a correct tool, if we are to find a needle in the haystack. Elastic search is one of many search engine database engines designed specifically for search. In this meetup, we look at the what, the why and the how of "search" in modern web-application using Elastic search engine.

Search is a major component when it comes to having meaningful user experience. Search is like a conversation between the user and system: the user expresses their information need as a query, and the system expresses its response as a set of results.

Talk outline:
- Search in web applications
- Types of Search/ Applications
- Factors affecting search
- Getting started with Elastic Search
- Build a simple search app
- Discussion

This talk will focus on elements of search and what each of them mean in context of development -
Sorting, Relevancy, Indexing and Full-text search.

These elements when used can lead to some of the most artistic user experience components like - autocomplete, filtered search, real-time streaming results update and more.

Free pizza and soft drinks !
