Main: Hands-on introduction to Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is today’s de-facto standard for central logging solutions and full-text search features in modern applications. But what all this means, and how to get started?

In this talk we will look into Elasticsearch’s capabilities, give a hands-on introduction to it and it’s REST API, and bootstrap a deployment of a cluster on the cloud to demonstrate how easy it is to launch a centralized logging cluster.

And we will wrap the evening with a Q&A session, so come prepared ūüôā
