Invited Talk: Search Engine Experience and Internals
Mike worked on a Web search site called AltaVista from 1995 to 1997. After giving an overview of how the Web site was structured and some operational problems encountered, he'll describe some software internals, focusing on things he enjoyed building. Parts of the talk will be interesting to system administrators, parts to people who enjoy algorithms and data structures, and a (small) part to people who enjoy over-optimizing short sections of assembly language.
