Join us to kickstart the new year - cheers to the awesome folks at Pivotal Labs for hosting us!

For January's meetup we are focusing on search, with two of our own Elasticians sharing:

Talk 1: Ian Chiang, App Search Specialist, Elastic

In this session, we will discuss on adding search to your software applications. We released Elastic App Search, a search-as-a-service solution, back in May last year. It is designed to simplify the process of building rich, user-facing search experiences. It leverages the incredible power of Elasticsearch and focus it squarely on powering your app's search experience. Come and join us to see it in action.

Talk 2: Daniel Schneiter, Education Engineer, Elastic

The evaluation of search ranking results is an complicated task, but the new Elasticsearch Ranking Evaluation API tries to make it easier to measure well-known information retrieval metrics. This helps to make better relevance tuning decisions and allows to evaluate and optimize query templates over a wider range of user needs. After a short introduction into ranking evaluation in general I will give a short demo of the API.
