Hi all,

We are glad to invite you to our next event in June. This time Mark and Alan from Elastic (https://www.elastic.co/) will be speaking about some of the key features of Elasticsearch (https://www.elastic.co/products/elasticsearch) on Wednesday 24th of June.

The talks:

Building Entity Centric Indexes by Mark Harwood

What are the limits of elasticsearch's analytic functions? How can we overcome them and get deeper insights? Many users know how to quickly configure elasticsearch to capture firehoses of logging records and use Kibana to visualize all of the data. However, if you want to answer more advanced questions a different approach is required which joins up the dots behinds the scenes.
This session shows how to use existing elasticsearch features on real data sets to efficiently answer questions such as:

* Which website visitors look to be behaving like "bots"?
* Which seller in my marketplace has employed an army of "shills" to boost his feedback rating?
* Which cars are driven long distances after failing roadworthiness tests? What sorts of people are driving them?

Elasticsearch in Action by Alan Hardy

In this talk, Alan will provide an overview of some of the key features of Elasticsearch including: horizontal scalability and resiliency, queries and filters and aggregations in action. Alan will leave ample time for Q&A following his presentation so the audience can get their deep dive questions answered.
