Session abstract: 

No need anymore to present faceted search, which is used on most search engines in order to give insights about the hits that matched the query.

Elasticsearch 1.0 introduced aggregations, which have been designed to be the successor of facets. What do aggregations bring that wasn't possible with facets? Composability. Although this may not look like a huge improvement, this actually opens up many possibilities, that this presentation will discuss.
