Great, we’ve got some data thanks to the previous post. Now how do we dive in?
Well seems like these filings were originally in a document database, and given their json content, let’s pick on at random from the wonderful list from wikipedia.
I know the names of some of these, and surprised other one’s weren’t on this list (Cassandra and CouchDB, guess apache projects got off the short-list somehow…).
Anywho, I’ve heard good things about elasticsearch and a duckduckgo search leads me to believe it should do at least some of what I want, there seem to be reasonable docs, and Kibana looks cool. I’m sold (mostly cause it’s free/open)! Haven’t touched java in years let’s hope I don’t need to get in the weeds at all.
