Better searching with elasticsearch


Comments are closed.

Great insight into elasticsearch with lots of use cases and code examples. Some parts were hard to understand for a non native speaker though.

Good talk & good slides.

Great overview of elasticsearch. Slides were great but the talk itself might have been more entertaining. It was noticable that you were stressed so you couldn't get in touch with the audience.

Nice examples showing features of elasticsearch.

Was hard to understand presentation. And it was too much of reading docs.

OK, but only for people who did not use elasticsearch before - for anyone with even basic experience it was all quite obvious. Would be great to see some tips & tricks on indexing documents, pros & cons of different approaches, performance benchmarks etc.

i'm rly try to understand but i've heard only "element bklaal" etc.. sorry i went to phpGeo

Quite good but shame that only basics were shown. Not enough experience with elastic search was visible when questions were asked. If it were more smooth I'd give it a 4-star rating.

Good talk. I understand that you cannot go into more advanced stuff it quite normal at the conferences (ppl have different level of knowledge), so everybody whom want to know more can ask you later about some stuff right ? :)
If I were you I'd tried to speak more slowly - sometime it can be just too fast for the not native english audience.

It was introduction to elasticsearch for those, who didn't hear about it. Quite long introduction, but real examples then.

I missed information based on experience - other things that we can find in docs. And audience also missed it I guess.

Speaker? Having in mind night before, he handled it quite well ;)

Good talk, but I think it was too hard to understand for people that heard about elasticsearch (or Lucene) for the first time. I'm afraid I was able to understand examples only because I'm quite familiar with Lucene and Solr.

I would expect more informations based on experience than elasticsearch tutorials. Eg. why ES? Is it better than solr? What are cases studies. etc.

Besides the speaker talks little unintelligible.

One of the few interesting talks at PHPCon. Richard prepared the presentation very well and you could see that he is nailing it. Only thing was that Richard was a bit tired on the stage - but after the amount of knowledge gained on the first day I would as well ;P ;)
