Elastic search is becoming the de facto search engine these days and is an amazing product. I rebuilt all our search clsuters at Path. It was a great opportunity to be at ElasticON in San Francisco. I learned a lot about elastic search and also about other users using ES.
In particular these three talks were very impressive.
1. 500 Billion documents – This was a fantastic talk about ES and scaling it.
2. Using ES in github.
3. Using ES to detect earthquakes.
The party at ES was great too 🙂
