Search in Your Rails App

Thursday 19th March 6:30pm at The BBC

Search is an essential part of most web applications and building up ‘like’ clauses in code just doesn’t cut it. This month we have three talks on three different search daemons so you have the knowledge to go away and add quality search to your app.

This month we have sponsorship from Brightbox so there will be free Pizza, Beer and soft drinks after the talks, and maybe some T-Shirts and stickers too.

The schedule

  • 6:30pm :: Welcome & Registration
  • 7:00pm :: Talks on Sphinx, Solr & Ferret by Will Jessop, Asa Calow & John Leach
  • 7:45pm :: Pizzas/Beer/Soft-drinks provided by Brightbox
  • 8:30pm :: Drinks at the BBC bar afterwards, then somewhere else nearby after that closes at about 21:00
