Meet other local Software Developers interested in the Scala programming language. Discuss the advantages of Scala, such as full support for Object-Oriented and Functional Programming, a succinct syntax, and other improvements over Java and C#.

  4. This talk was given in January 2013 at the Chicago Enterprise Search Meetup meetup.com/Enterprise-Search-Chicago/, hosted at Spantree's office in the West Loop.

    It was co-presented by Cedric Hurst and Gary Turovsky of Spantree Technology Group, LLC spantree.net.

    We cover the basics of the Elasticsearch APIs, mostly through examples of mapping, indexing and querying via a cURL-based REPL written specifically for the presentation.
