Cloud Cover 152: Azure Search with Liam Cavanagh
In this episode Chris Risner and Haishi Bai are joined by Liam Cavanagh, Program Manager for the Azure Search team. Azure Search is a scalable, fully managed, full-text search within Azure. It enables developers to add a great experience to web apps, mobile apps, and anything else they might be building. Channel 9 itself is using Azure Search to power searching the content on this site. Here, Liam demonstrates how to generate an index using Fiddler to send web requests to his Search Service. After generating an index, he then adds JSON documents to index. Once data is added and an index is generated, Liam then performs several different types of searches on the data.
