The ultimate no slides no bullshit introduction to ElasticSearch

Run

./bin/setup.sh

and then go through hammer_it.sh and let ElasticSearch show it's potential and awesomeness.

This introduction will make heavy use of elasticsearch tooling like stream2es or kibana-dashboard as well as online data fetch from twitter via your personal twitter account. In order to go through all the examples you should have a reasonable internet connection.

Here is a video of me giving this talk at NoSQL Matters in Cologne 2013.

NOTE:

  • stream2es requires a setup step in order to stream data from twitter directly. Check out the documentation from here how initally setup the tools. All you need is a working twitter account and you should be ready to go.
  • if you want to use the bin/fetchSource.sh script you need to have the JQ JSON commandline tool installed
