Paul Pedersen (Deputy CTO of MongoDB Inc) will be talking about MongoDB 2.6 and Text Search;
Mongo v2.6 integrates text search. This talk walks through a soup-to-nuts example: ingest a public TSV-data set, create text and non-text indexes, explore these data with mixed text/select queries, formulate aggregation pipelines using text search filters to extract some basic insights in to the given data set, export selected / pivoted data to stats package 'R' for further analysis. After the example, we'll talk about the complete text-search syntax and the text-search road map. Text queries can be combined with regular selection queries in 'find' and in aggregation pipelines.
