I presented introductory material on Elasticsearch for the South Shore .NET Users Group.
Here are the slides:
This talk covers an overview of Elasticsearch data mining. Elasticsearch is a Big Data solution to document storage and search. It is a NoSQL-backed search engine using a HDFS-based filesystem.
- Elasticsearch basics
- Setting up a development environment
- Loading data
- Searching data using REST
- Searching data using NEST, the .NET interface
- Understanding Scores
Finally, I show a use-case for data mining using Elasticsearch. You’ll walk away from this armed with the knowledge to add Elasticsearch to your data analysis toolkit and your applications.
