Elastic night!


We are delighted to announce our first event at the Singapore Java User Group! Our first meetup will be about Elasticsearch (https://www.elastic.co/).

Java Clients for Elasticsearch

Florian Hopf is based in Germany and will be visiting us in Singapore. He wrote a book on Elasticsearch, blogs on http://blog.florian-hopf.de and has tons of experience on anything that is search-related as well as Java technologies.
Florian will walk up through Java clients for Elasticsearch. As communication is based on HTTP and JSON, Elasticsearch can be used with nearly all programming languages. But still, using Elasticsearch with Java is special. The current standard client connects via an internal protocol
that brings some advantages and disadvantages and there are different alternative clients and abstractions.
This talk will show you the basics of Elasticsearch and how to choose a
client that suits your needs.

What’s new with Elastic 5?

Matias Cascallares (https://www.linkedin.com/in/mcascallares) works for Elastic (the company behind Elasticsearch). He is based in Singapore but travels all the time so we feel lucky we’ve been able to catch him for our Elastic night!
Elastic 5 has just been released and Matias will take us through all the new features that come with version 5.


The event will be sponsored by Paypal (venue) and Zenika (food).
Zenika is currently recruiting passionate Java and/or Javascript developers. You find out more about it here (http://www.zenika.sg/career/).
