This month, Frederick Cheung will be talking to LRUG about ElasticSearch. Frederick will show what we've used elasticsearch for and why we picked it over competing solutions such as solr or sphinx.
I'm Frederick Cheung, a UK based rails developer (fglc2 on twitter). I'm the CTO at dressipi, where we're revolutionising the way women shop for clothes. In the past I've written Mac desktop software, iOS apps and contributed to rails itself.
