The Guardian Making Journalism Better with Elasticsearch

The Guardian extensively uses Elasticsearch to enable the delivery of a better experience of journalism to its readers. In this talk, Graham talks though three key projects that rely heavily on Elasticsearch: Content API, which forms the underpinning of our ability to deliver digital journalism to readers; Ophan, a real-time analytics system that gives insight to editors and journalists as to how readers are finding and engaging with our journalism; and The Grid, enabling us to rapidly find great photography to accompany our journalism.
