Personalized Search on the Largest Flash Sale Site in America


Today  posted a presentation about the example of using Solr in the sale site.

“This talk provides a tour of how Apache Solr is used to power search for America’s largest flash sale site, http://www.gilt.com. We show how to address the challenges of providing listings for fast moving inventory in a search space personalized for each of our members. The solution, built on Play Framework comprises less than 4,000 lines of code, and provides response times of 40ms on average.”
