Get Lightning Fast Search Results in Django with Postgres

There are number of players that provide a full-text search feature, from embedded search, to dedicated search servers [solr, sphinx, elasticsearch etc]. Setting up and configuring these options is time-consuming and requires considerable knowledge of each tool.

What if we could get comparable search results using full text search capabilities of Postgres? Developers already have a working knowledge of the database and would have less tools to manage. In this presentation, Saikiran Yerram (CTO, Kipin Hall) shows you how to implement full text search in Django using Postgres and also explore other search options.


This talk was presented at a Django NYC meetup hosted by Buzzfeed.
