Full-Text Search: MongoDB vs Elasticsearch

Full-Text Search: MongoDB vs Elasticsearch

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:
* How full-text search works in general and what the differences to databases are.
* How the relevancy of documents is being calculated.
* How search works in MongoDB and Elasticsearch as well as what the differences between the two systems are.
