Intro to integrating search into your Django app.
A hands-on tutorial for people who want to start learning about and integrating search & discovery into their apps.
First, the basics of full-text search, product search, catalogues, result relevance and user experience will be covered in a short intro (15 minutes). We’ll then go through a series of steps together that will leave you with a minimal working Django example you can take back and apply to your work projects. Time is limited, so the focus will be on getting you to see and go through a simple approach you can copy easily later to produce useful prototypes for your work. Only open source will be used - Elasticsearch for the search back-end. For anyone building something that needs search, the presenter will be available at the conf outside of this session for 1:1 discussions on what you’re trying to do with search & discovery, how it might help or what excites you about the possibilities it opens up.
Break-out sessions are expected to last around 60 minutes. They will have limited seats and will have a sign-up option provided on the ticketholder website, once the schedule is known.
