Get the Lay of the Lucene Land (2017)
In spite of being close to 20 years old, the Lucene project keeps innovating. While the project was initially focused on full-text search, recent releases expanded its scope, most notably with doc values which made Lucene a competitive engine to run analytics, and multi-dimensional points which made Lucene better at handling structured data.
In this session, Adrien will share the stories between the latest features in Lucene 6, how they impacted Elasticsearch, as well as what to expect in Lucene 7.
