Introduction to Elasticsearch

The Introduction to Elasticsearch training course is a quick-start examination of Elasticsearch, and other related search technologies.

The course begins with a quick overview of the enterprise search landscape, identifying the key players, strengths and weaknesses, and typical application of the technologies. It then transitions into an examination of the key concepts required to get up and running with Elasticsearch in a day.

The Introduction to Elasticsearch course is intended to help adopters of Elasticsearch get started with enterprise search in a day. It is not intended to be a comprehensive, in depth examination.

For more comprehensive courses, explore either the Working with ElasticSearch or the Working with the ELK Stack courses.
