The Seattle MySQL Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

The Seattle MySQL Meetup Group
Tue, 6 Mar 2012, 03:00 - 05:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , Seattle, US

Monthly discussion group on MySQL, and open source projects in general.  In March we'll have Rich Kelm answering the age old question of "When to adopt a Sphinx (for Search)"


This presentation will provide a general overview of the basics in terms of the Sphinx search engine; in other-words, how one cares for and feeds it (documents). Not to mention, we will go over the unique characteristics of this search beast and what separates it from Full-Text search stand-ins such as MySQL. Then we launch a little deeper into the differences between MySQL's Full-Text Search and Sphinx's, and in what situations it would prove advantageous to adopt a Sphinx.

As always, you're welcome to bring questions and problems.

Sphinx will be providing beer and snacks!
