3 hours tutorial


Tutorial, Operations

Elasticsearch is well known as a highly scalable search engine that stores data in a structure optimized for language based searches but its capabilities and use cases don't stop there. In this tutorial, I'll give you a hands-on introduction to Elasticsearch and give you a glimpse at some of the fundamental concepts.
Database administration is challenging, and Elasticsearch is not an exception to that rule. In this tutorial, we will cover various administrative topics like Installation and Configuration, Cluster/Node management, Indexes management and Monitoring Cluster Health which will help you. Building applications on top of an Elasticsearch are also challenging and raise concerns about schema design. In this tutorial, we will cover developer-oriented topics like Mappings and Analysis, Aggregations and Schema Design that will help you build a robust application on top of Elasticsearch.
There will be lab sessions at the end of some chapters so please have your laptops with you.
