Talk 1

Honza Král - High-level Python library elasticsearch-dsl


Honza will show a brief demo of our new high-level Python library elasticsearch-dsl. Its goal is to provide a convenient way to write and manipulate queries without the need to write them manually while sacrificing none of the flexibility and power of Elasticseach's query DSL.

Speaker bio:

Django developer and enthusiast. Python developer at Elasticsearch. Since Honza is scared of the bright and shiny world of browsers, designers, and users he prefers to stay buried deep in the infrastructure code and just provides others with tools to do the actual site-building.
Since 2008 Honza has been building content web sites for fun and profit. During this time he discovered ElasticSearch which lead to him joining the company behind it in 2013 to work on the Python drivers.

Jodok Batlogg - SQL on Top of Elasticsearch

“We’ve been using Elasticsearch since 2010 and really wished to use it as primary store. a data store that is as easy to use and scale. we built our distributed SQL engine including the facebook presto SQL parser, added a blob storage layer - and Crate Data was born.”

Speaker bio:

Jodok has deep experience and wide recognition for his expertise in open source and big data. As early innovator he started with cloud services in 2006 and entered the world of billions of records many years ago. He is co-founder and CEO of Crate Technology and the former CTO of StudiVZ (Germany’s Facebook), the CTO of Sevenload and the CEO of Lovely Systems. Additionaly, he was a director of the Plone & Zope foundations. Loves his skis, his chainsaw and is an adventurous eater. @jodok @cratedata
