DjangoCon Europe, 2nd to 7th June 2015, in Cardiff, Wales. 6 days of talks, tutorials and code.

Elasticsearch meetup

Elasticsearch community meetup, sponsored by Elastic.

We’re very pleased to welcome the Elasticsearch community to DjangoCon, for a meetup with a talk by Honza Král, an Elasticsearch core developer.

This meetup is open to all, not just DjangoCon attendees.

Beyond the basics with Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch has many use cases, some of them fairly obvious and widely used, like plain searching through documents or analytics. In this talk I would like to go through some of the more advanced scenarios we have seen in the wild. Some examples of what we will cover:

Trend detection - how you can use the aggregation framework to go beyond simple “counting” and make use of the full-text properties of Elasticsearch.

Percolator - percolator is reversed search and many people use it as such to drive alerts or “stored search” functionality for their website, let’s look at how we can use it to detect languages, geo-locations or drive live search.

If we end up with some time to spare we can explore some other ideas about how we can utilize the features of a search engine to drive non-trivial data analysis.

Honza is a Python programmer and Django core developer. Since 2008, Honza has been building content websites for fun and profit. During this time he discovered Elasticsearch, which lead to him joining the company behind it in 2013 to work on the Python drivers.


Attendees at this meetup are welcome to come to the DjangoCon party that follows for food and drinks, sponsored by Elastic.
