Elasticsearch Portlandia Meetup - Elasticsearch & .NET

Mozilla Portland Office
Brewery Block 2 1120 NW Couch St, Suite 320
Portland, Oregon 97209, US (map)



Martijn Laarman and Greg Marzouka, Elastic.co's two lead .NET developers will be giving a talk titled "Elasticsearch for .NET Developers". Food and drink will be provided, and thanks to Mozilla for hosting! Talk will begin at 6:30 PM.

Abstract: Elasticsearch for .NET Developers: A whirlwind dive into the strongly-typed client for .NET Elasticsearch offers a simple REST interface that exposes JSON, so a .NET developer might be tempted to simply use HttpClient and Json.NET to talk with Elasticsearch.

In this talk we'll showcase, through the usage of LINQPad, some of the features that outline how NEST plays to C# strengths and helps you write terser code, all just one line of code away: new ElasticClient(). A few of the topics that we'll cover:

  • Strongly-typed requests and responses - Inference- Query DSL- Aggregations- Covariant result sets- Connection pooling and failover

Attendees will leave this talk knowing how to fully tame Elasticsearch from .NET

Please RSVP for the event on meetup.com so we can order sufficient food and drinks for all attendees: http://www.meetup.com/The-Portlandia-ElasticSearch-Meetup-Group/events/221442669/
