Many articles and talks document how to use Elasticsearch as a search engine, but few go into detail about the powerful aggregation and analytical tools Elasticsearch provides. This talk will walk you through practical examples written in PHP using nested aggregations to quickly segment and provide data for charting among millions of records within a web request.

I really enjoyed the real-world examples, especially the side-by-side comparison between native queries and using the PHP library.

I enjoyed how the talk was grounded in the goals and challenges that Dan faced on a daily basis. It gave me a good sense for not just theoretical usability of Elasticsearch, but also how to apply its abilities to real world problems.
