Elasticsearch teaches you how to write applications that deliver professional quality search. As you read, you’ll learn to add basic search features to any application, enhance search results with predictive analysis and relevancy ranking, and use saved data from prior searches to give users a custom experience. This practical course focuses on Elasticsearch’s REST API via HTTP. Code snippets are written mostly in bash using cURL, so they’re easily translatable to other languages 

Working in a hands-on learning environment, led by our Elasticsearch expert instructor, students will learn about and explore: 

  • teaches you how to build scalable search applications using Elasticsearch.  
  • You’ll ramp up fast, with an informative overview and an engaging introductory example.  
  • you’ll pick up the core concepts you need to implement basic searches and efficient indexing.  
  • With the fundamentals well in hand, you’ll go on to gain an organized view of how to optimize your design.
