Excellent talk Derek! You really demystified what Elastic search is and how to use it. Your presentation and demo was clear and compelling!

The beginning of this talk could go a bit slower for a more beginner audience (explain more about how the data is stored and structured), but otherwise, this talk was a great introduction to Elasticsearch. I loved seeing the live examples of how fast these queries really are. The ability to use location data in your searches was also really interesting. The talk was easy to follow and engaging. Thank you for presenting!

From my standpoint as somebody who has only heard about ElasticSearch, this was a good review. I liked seeing the real data usages, especially the aggregation analysis and geolocation example of distance from the zoo, those really hit home. It would be good to briefly mention the infrastructure needed or people might think this is some sort of plugin they can run on WordPress, when it seems to take more setup than that to get it working. I don't think more php examples would be beneficial. You didn't do this, but please don't fall in the trap of showing the install process, nobody needs to go through that! Thanks for the talk.
