How do you build a hosted prefix search service that can power suggestions for a dynamic, google-style autocomplete?
This talk will walk you through how Jay Shenk (https://twitter.com/jay_shenk) worked with two other developers to build an open source project called Prefixy (https://www.prefixy.io)to do just that.
Topics covered include:
• A deep dive into data structure and algorithm analysis to support efficient prefix search
• Building a ranking algorithm to support crowd-sourced suggestions
• Creating a service that supports multi-tenancy, and allows developers to add plug-and-play autocomplete to their sites
• Implementation using Node, Express, Redis, and MongoDB
