David Pilato is Developer and Evangelist at elastic and French spoken language User Group creator. In his free time, he likes talking about elasticsearch in conferences or in companies (Brown Bag Lunches).
Q. Tell us a bit about yourself. What are your hobbies and interests?
I started to code very early like when I was 9 years old on a ZX81 that my father soldered by himself. 1kb of RAM. We extended it to 16kb which was kind of “big data” at this time 🙂
Q. Why did you select this topic for your session at Voxxed Days Cluj-Napoca 2017?
This topic is based on my own experience when I was working at the french customs. I decided to integrate my application which was using PostgreSQL for search with elasticsearch. I had to make some decisions and this is basically what I’m going to explain.
I love this talk because it’s a 100% pure live coding session without any slides. A bit of risk and fun mixed together!
Q. Who should attend your session?
Ideally a Java developer as the session is Java based but any other programmers can totally understand the concepts behind the talk. So if you don’t know what a search engine is, what elasticsearch is, how to integrate elasticsearch with your database or just want to attend a fun and interactive session, just take a seat and relax!
Q. What are the key things attendees will take away from your session?
Elasticsearch: what is it?
Using an ETL: main drawbacks.
CRUD operations with elasticsearch.
Mapping and analysers.
Faceted navigation pattern.
Dealing with typos.
Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Cluj-Napoca 2017, what is the year review look like for you?
This year, I went to something like 20+ conferences and probably shared my talks with more than 2500 attendees.
I’m also doing what I call BBL (Brown Bag Lunch) talks in companies and that’s a big part of my activity as well.
Q. What are your plans for the next year?
And of course, I wish I’ll meet again lot of people and share my passion with them!
