Most of our search development work focuses on retrieving the right documents and showing them to the user in the best possible order. Additional features like spelling correction or auto-completion receive less attention and they are often neglected. We think that for the user, these features can have a major impact on the success of search - they are not encores!
In this workshop participants will learn how they can build features such as facets, auto-completion and auto-suggest, spelling correction and query relaxation for e-commerce search using the Solr search engine. We will also discuss the intuition and challenges behind these features as a starting point for participants to implement solutions beyond out-of-the-box components.
