A few months ago, I delivered a presentation at the local Atlanta Java User Group, covering an Introduction to ElasticSearch. Below, you can find the video and the slides (uploaded to slideshare)… Warning: the presentation clocks-in at two hours!


The presentation covers configuring ElasticSearch clusters, how the underlying Lucene engines work, how nodes communicate, JSON & REST API examples, and a short Q&A session at the very end.
