Just a quick heads-up that I’ll be giving a 50 minute talk at OpenWest in Utah on Thursday, May 8th. The talk is titled real-time search infrastructure architecture at craigslist and is completely new. We’ve recently completed the 3 major revision to our search infrastructure at craigslist and I’ll be talking about what it looks like now, why, how we did it, and where we may go from here.
If you haven’t seen my talks on this topic before, I’ll be talking a lot about how we use the Sphinx Search Engine.
I’ve never been to OpenWest but I’ve head a lot of good things about it. And since I’ve been looking to broaden my conference horizons, it seemed like a good one to attend. Thanks to the folks at OpenWest for picking my talk and allowing craigslist to sponsor the event as well.
The full schedule looks like there will be a lot of interesting talks. I’m really looking forward to it.
On a related note: craigslist is hiring for frontend, backend, and systems administrators. Send me your resume at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested or just want to know more about working at craigslist. 🙂
