Search-based solutions are applications that use a search page as the primary interface. Solutions such as image searching or travel searching in Bing are good examples of search-based solutions. SharePoint 2010 offers developers new ways to extend search and create search-based solutions. In this session, attendees will learn to create search-based solutions by using custom relevance models, extending SharePoint 2010 search parts, and utilizing .NET Assembly Connectors to access external systems. The techniques presented will prepare attendees to create search-based solutions on their own.
