Andrew Aksyonoff

CEO/CTO, Sphinx Search

Andrew is the founder and creative force behind Sphinx, an open-source full-text search engine designed specifically for performance, scalability, and relevance.


Search is easy. Just how hard can a CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX can be, right? Except that won't scale. And it won't be easy to tweak either. And don't even get me started on relevance. (And no, relevance isn't something only Google can have, because they enslaved every scientist working on that.)
