It takes JSON as input and supports fulltext, range and spatial searches. After the talk you should have an understanding on how Noise is different from other similar systems and how it works internally. Keyvi - Key value index (http://keyvi.org) - is a key value store based on finite state data structures. Store? So far it has only been an index, an immutable data structure which does not support online writes. But with the latest major release it finally became a store. This talk will be about the journey towards adding full CRUD support, while performance matters." Elastic Stack - Thinking about building an end-to-end security analytics platform with the Elastic Stack? This talk will be based on a demo showing how to detect DNS tunneling and analyze the attack vector using different data sources.

  • Search Meetup Munich: November Edition
    The Munich Search Meetup is all about search technologies. This is the 21st meetup, last one for this year! Johannes from Mesosphere is in town to talk about data stores in DC/OS. The fine folks of digital product school ( https://www.digitalproductschool.io/ ) are so kind to sponsor location, drinks and snacks. Agenda: 18:30 - 19:00 Gathering, snacks & drinks 19:00 - 19:45 Container: check! But how to operate multiple data stores aside?! by Johannes Unterstein (https://twitter.com/unterstein) from Mesosphere 19:45 - 20:00 Break 20:15 - 20:45: Linguistic Search Plugin for Elasticsearch - by Christoph Goller from Intrafind 20:45 - end: open end & networking If you have a fancy 30-40 minute talk, ping us, and we'll make it happen! More detailed talk submissions: In the past years we migrated our applications to containers to isolate our applications and made them easily shippable. But now we are struggling running stateful applications to make them scaleable and fault tolerant. Furthermore we run our big data and fast data frameworks (for example Elasticsearch, Kafka, Cassandra or Spark) in separate clusters because it is quite hard to integrate those data stores into our current container stack. This means that our cluster utilization is not optimal and we resign scaling effects comprehensive containers and data frameworks. Florian Leibert (Mesosphere, CEO) calls this phenomenon Container 2.0 and we will discuss this topic in this session. In this session we will see how DC/OS and Apache Mesos helps to solve these issues and optimize cluster resource sharing across all parts of your application. In a huge demo we will see how to operate SpringBoot microservices together with MySQL, Neo4j, Elasticsearch and Spark.

    The Munich Search Meetup is all about search technologies. This is the 20th meetup, finally after the sommer break! Our friends at Westwing (https://www.westwing.de/) are so kind to sponsor the event. Agenda: 18:30 - 19:00 Gathering, snacks & drinks 19:00 - 19:30 Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Nested * But Were Afraid to Ask, by Davide Cadamuro from Westwing 19:30 - 20:00 Content-as-a-service, by Heeren Sharma from Cliqz 20:00 - 20:15 Break 20:15 - 20:45 TBD, ping us if you have a nice topic 20:45 - end: open end & networking If you have a fancy 30 minute talk, ping us, and we'll make it happen! More detailed talk submissions: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Nested * But Were Afraid to Ask The Westwing mission is to inspire and make every home a beautiful home. We offer the latest trends in home décor and furnishing products, and want to help our customers to easily find the ideal fit for their home. A good search experience is fundamental for our business. It is our challenge to provide it. Faceting, filtering and sorting are well established standards for e-commerce websites, since they allow to the user to navigate through the otherwise overwhelming amount of goods and products. Of course, ElasticSearch provides us with all of the machinery to efficiently implement these standards. With a flat data structure, this is extremely simple. Unfortunately, a flat data structure isn’t always sufficient. In some cases, nested data structures become unavoidable: products come in different sizes, prices, colours etc. Dealing with this level of detail in the proper way makes it more difficult to query, sort and aggregate data. In this talk I will guide you through the additional conundrums that come with nested fields and show how to solve them. I will review how we implemented the basic building blocks of faceting, filtering and sorting, using nested queries, nested aggregations, nested sorting and inner hits. Content-as-a-service This talk is centered around building real-time and lightening responsive news search engine. From streaming data processing to system architecture, all bits and pieces will be covered. Specially in case of news articles streaming in the system, challenges and whole ecosystems of aggregation to scoring algorithm will be introduced. Realisation of plug and play micro-service architecture will be another focus of this talk so that in the end audience will see how complex but fun is building news search engine. This talk will be accompanied by live demo showing how to create one focused news feed using Cliqz News Technology.

    The Munich Search Meetup is all about search technologies. This is the 18th meetup. Our friends at Holidu (https://www.holidu.de/) are so kind to sponsor the event. Agenda: 18:30 - 19:00 Gathering 19:00 - 19:45 Holidu: Meta search engine 101 - Building it from scratch 19:45 - 20:00 Break 20:00 - 20:45 Using Elasticsearch to understand software projects and teams, by Florian Lorétan 20:45 - end: open end & networking Longer talk descriptions: Holidu: Meta search engine 101 - Building it from scratch In comparison to other industries, the vacation rental market is strongly fragmented and thus it is especially hard for the user to find and book the best accommodation. Holidu intends to make it as easy as possible for travellers worldwide to find the right accommodation. For that reason we have built our search engine: http://www.holidu.de Starting from a two node Elasticsearch 1.5 cluster we have scaled up to 19 nodes running on version 5.4. We manage our own Elasticsearch infrastructure and combine it with other technologies like PostgreSQL, Redis and Redshift to create custom frameworks for ranking, analytics, logging, monitoring and more. In this talk we will provide technical insights on how our meta search engine works and how early decisions to be stateless and reactive have helped us scale horizontally from a vision up to 150,000 users a day. Florian Loretan: Using Elasticsearch to understand software projects and teams Working in a large agency with flexible teams spread across Europe like wunder.io (http://wunder.io/), it can be challenging to answer questions like "who could help me with this coding problem?" or "what projects have used similar solutions?". There is a mine of data with all of this information available – our git repositories – but the native format isn't exactly ideal to perform data analysis. Fortunately, exporting that data into Elasticsearch provides a great way to get insights into projects and teams, and to gain a deeper understanding of the software that gets built inside our organization.
