ElasticSearch and Ruby on Rails – Part 1

Recently I have been using two databases in my large Rails projects – 1, an RDBMS like MySQL, as a data store and another – ElasticSearch – as a denormalized document store that drives the front end data.

In this video, I go over how to get ElasticSearch into your Rails project and get the data into ElasticSearch.

There are tons of uses for ElasticSearch once you have it in your app and taking in data. This video really just scratches the surface. If you want to know more let me know and I’ll make more videos about it!
