Today’s applications are expected to provide powerful full-text search. But how does that work in general and how do I implement it on my site or in my application?

Actually, this is not as hard as it sounds at first. This talk covers:

* Why full-text search is so fast.
* How the score or quality of a search result is calculated.
* How to implement this with Elasticsearch.
