Thijs is a really good speaker, entertaining.
Nice slides, really liked it.

Hey Thijs, I'm sorry I'm going to have to disappoint you: You wanted something to improve about this talk and I haven't got anything I can think of. It was just plain excellent. Really nice slides too.

Really nice talk. Fun to listen to and great information. I already had ElasticSearch on my list to use but this talk greatly improved that. Shame about the "commercial" parts.

Great speaker. You convinced me that ElasticSearch is actually great (and I'm just used to a bad implementation of it). Thanks for the sysadmin tips as well.

It was pure joy to learn something new that way! Very good presentation - informative and funny. I will definitely give this technology a try.

But IMHO using SQL to prove how good Elasticsearch is a double-edged sword. The only reason I gave 4, not 5.

Thijs is an tech enthusiast who can still encourage and entertain at the same time! From slides to the way he walked around. Clearly experienced and very much in the know on his subject!

(also i noticed the `elastic` clothing, nice touch!)

I had great expectations from this talk - this could be the reason why I was disappointed. There were weird comparisons between SQL queries and Elastic Search commands, and there was no discussion about "real" use cases. Also, the talk provided us with some ideas about what operations ElasticSearch can perform, but with no discussion about performance, storage, stability, administrative tasks, etc.

Hi Federico,

Sorry I left you disappointed. The SQL stuff was only included to make sure novice users could understand what was happening. I've done this talk before and some people really found it convenient. Now I notice some people didn't like it.

I had no intention to start any discussion, the only goal was to "get things done". A 40 minute time slot is too short for that, unfortunately. Also it's way too short to cover stuff in-depth, like the management part.

I specifically mentioned that in one of my slides: "Plenty of ways ... for which we don't have time"

Maybe one day, I'll do a dedicated talk about ElasticSearch management. I'll let you know if/when that happens.

Too bad I wasted your time. Do you believe you were misled by the abstract? Let me know if there's a way to improve that.

Thanks for the honest feedback
