3/16 – NYC Pivotal Tech Talk

March 17, 2010 Pivotal Labs

Yesterday we had Mat Brown of Patch.com giving us a presentation on his Sunspot gem for easily adding full-text search to a Rails application via Solr.

Mat walked us through the steps for adding Sunspot to a Rails application, talked through some of the production deployment concerns of Solr and illustrated some of the new features of Solr 1.4 such as master/slave replication and sharding that make it worth a look for full-text search.

Most of our tech talks are open to the public. If you’re interested in joining us for presentations like this please join our mailing list.
