Course Overview
Hi, everyone, my name is Thomas Henson and welcome to my course, Executing Basic Queries with Elasticsearch. I'm a data author here at Pluralsight. I'm excited about this course because Elasticsearch was my first entry into what became the world of big data for me in my own career. Chances are you've used many different applications that use Elasticsearch for their search capability. In this course, we're going to break down the basic of Elasticsearch queries. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how Elasticsearch indexes data, step‑by‑step for building Elasticsearch queries, understanding the difference between a leaf query and a compound query in Elasticsearch, and methods for structuring Elasticsearch parameters. By the end of this course, you will feel comfortable building your own Elasticsearch queries. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with JSON files and have some background with SQL queries, that would be helpful, but it's not required. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Elasticsearch with courses on complex queries in Elasticsearch, indexing data in Elasticsearch, and executing full text queries of Elasticsearch. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn Elasticsearch with the Executing Basic Queries with Elasticsearch course, here at Pluralsight.
