  • Elastic Search: Speeding up your applications

    Elastic Search has emerged as the revolutionary technology that allows us to provide fast performance for applications. It is a NoSql database but unlike other NoSql databases it is built as a search index which allows it to provide excellent performance. Using the NEST library, ElasticSearch can be easily used using just the LINQ query syntax that many .Net developers are used to. Elastic Search also provides a Javascript based REST API that you can use purely from client side. In this session, we will start with a short explanation of ElasticSearch, cover using it via client-side only, then via .NET LINQ and then cover some advanced features like aggregations.
