What would you like to do?
elasticsearch and NEST requirements


elasticsearch & kibana

You can use "I'll install it by myself" way or docker compose, whatever works for you better. Docker compose script is here, manual installation steps are listed below. Please make sure to follow other steps.

java 1.8.x

elasticsearch 6.2.4

download follow installation steps

After you downloaded and run elasticsearch(ES) instance, http://localhost:9200 in your browser should return

  "name" : "awTmG2s",
  "cluster_name" : "elasticsearch",
  "cluster_uuid" : "5FygmZx4TuqvPJP0io_fNw",
  "version" : {
    "number" : "6.2.4",
    "build_hash" : "ccec39f",
    "build_date" : "2018-04-12T20:37:28.497551Z",
    "build_snapshot" : false,
    "lucene_version" : "7.2.1",
    "minimum_wire_compatibility_version" : "5.6.0",
    "minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "5.0.0"
  "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

kibana 6.2.4

download and also, follow instalation steps :)

Maku sure all is good by going to http://localhost:5601 in your fav. browser. You should see something like


dotnet core 2.0+

Run dotnet --version, will print

Rob@DESKTOP-CFOA2QH C:\somedirectory
$ dotnet --version

or something very similar.


We will also need some kind of IDE installed on your machine so you can follow exercises. Here we have at least three options:

  • Visual Studio 2017 Community
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Notepad++ .. you know, we just need to have some kind of editor tool, build and running tests can be done in terminal/cmd


And git, so we can clone repository and do some exercises

Don't give up

I understand there is a lot of things to install and all this configuration .. crazy! If something is not working and you are worry .. don't give up! We will have some time before actual workshops, we will help with that.
