In life, we are always in search of something. Whether we search for the meaning of life or the most delicious tacos in town, we heavily rely on search engines to get the answers.

You may already use apps such as Yelp, Uber, or Wikipedia on a daily basis. But did you know that some features of these apps were built with Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is known as the heart of the Elastic Stack, which consists of Elasticsearch, Kibana, and Integrations. The Elastic Stack allows us to take data from any source, in any format, then search, analyze, and visualize it in real-time.

If you are a developer looking to make data usable in real-time and at scale, the Elastic Stack is a great tool to have on your belt.

Contrary to

popular belief,

Lorem Ipsum is not

simply random text.

It has roots in a piece of

classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin

words,

consectetur,

from a Lorem

Ipsum passage, and

going through the

cites of the word in

classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested.
