Search Delight on Mobile with Algolia

Ferdinand Bada

Lead Android Engineer

Currently, Firestore does not support full text search, which is why it recommends third-party tools like Algolia. I have had the chance to work with Algolia and faced its challenges and I am now ready to share my experience to the community. I have used the tool in production and soon releasing an app with it.
In one of my Twitter posts, I actually got in touch with the Algolia team and had the chance to understand the feature better. From what I have seen, it is an absolute delight. The session will include several code examples showing how to build an app using recommended MVVM architecture as well as Jetpack components.

I am an experienced Android Developer with nearly three years experience in the field and passionate about learning. I have been developing mostly with Kotlin and I am steadily adopting Flutter. I got the opportunity to attend and speak in several events last year and I want to spread any knowledge and experiences as well.
Presently, I am involved heavily in the Andela Learning Community in helping out aspiring developers. I am also a mentor and code reviewer at Udacity and maintain a blog.
