What is Elasticsearch Developer I Training about?

Master core concepts of Elasticsearch to develop search and analytics applications. Learn how to write search queries, perform text analysis, define mappings, perform aggregations and implement suggesters.

Gain practical working knowledge to develop Elasticsearch applications, solutions and search results as you learn with our certified instructors. Gain hands-on experience with our cloudlabs to perform various advanced bucket and metrics aggregations on the stocks index, run queries that involve controlling the results of searches using relevance boosting, sorting, and pagination, analyze API to see how the built-in analyzers work and write various queries that search documents using Search API queries like match, range and bool.

The course is designed to provide a hands-on experience to help you acquire essential skills to write various types of search queries.

Be industry ready to build search and analytics solutions using Elasticsearch in your organization.
