What's Evolving in Elasticsearch? (2017)
The 5.0 release of Elasticsearch took advantage of the cleanups in 2.0 to add a slew of new features on top of a rock-solid foundation.
Clint and Simon will give an overview of the changes already released in the 5.x series, and a taste of the big new features coming in 6.0.
Clinton Gormley was the first user of Elasticsearch and wrote the Perl API back in 2010. He is a co-author of Elasticsearch: The Definitive Guide, and spends most of his time designing the user interface, specifying new features, and triaging GitHub issues. He studied medicine at UCT in Cape Town and now lives in Barcelona.
