A pythonic full-text search - Paolo Melchiorre

Keeping in mind the pythonic principle that “simple is better than complex” we will see how to implement full-text search in a web service using only Django and PostgreSQL and we will analyse the advantages of this solution compared to more complex solutions based on dedicated search engines.
About Paolo: I’m a Python developer who contributes to the Django project and gives talks at tech conferences. I’ve been a GNU/Linux user since 2000 and I use and promote Free Software. I have a degree in Computer Science and currently I work remotely, in Pescara (Italy), for 20tab as CTO.
