This talk came about a month after the 100% rollout of LinkedIn Faceted People Search. See blog by Esteban Kozak.
In this talk, I talked about the LinkedIn search infrastructure that hosts various LinkedIn search properties, e.g. people search, news search, job search etc.
The main features we built are:
- realtime indexing/search
- streaming/live update
- faceted navigation
- section search
- distributed index partitioning
The slides provide a glance through how we built these technologies through the following open source projects we built/working on:
Some of the notable attendees are:
- Daniel Tunkelang - Former Chief-Scientist at Endeca - enterprise search solution with faceted search emphasis, and author of the blog, TheNoisyChannel.
- Stefan Groschupf - Creator of the popular distributed search open source project: Katta.
along with representations from companies such as Google, Apple and VMWare etc.
I am glad to have learned different uses for search technology and hope the technologies we have built to be helpful in different areas.
