Algolia DevBit is a quarterly livestream series where the Algolia Engineering team shares news, information, and best practices with the Algolia developer community.

This recap covers new pricing plans, the Algolia NeuralSearch private beta, and everything else we discussed in the March 2023 event.

Put your user data in motion

Advanced Algolia features like recommendations and dynamic re-ranking are powered by machine learning. But ML models are only as effective as the event data used to train them. I kicked things off with a walkthrough of adding click and conversion tracking to an existing InstantSearch application.

Get yourself connected

Getting data into your Algolia index is the first step to getting value out of it. Product Manager Keshia Rose demonstrates how you can use our new no-code data connectors to pull JSON or CSV data from your applications, either on-demand or on a schedule. Both connectors are available in public beta right now.

Take a peek under the hood

How do you power 50,000 search queries every second? Senior Engineer Jose-Paul Dominguez walks us through the past and future of Algolia’s service architecture. Traditionally, our services are built on bare-metal clusters of memory-hungry nodes. This presented some interesting challenges as we moved workloads from custom-built machines to cloud services to enable new features like NeuralSearch.

Join the Algolia NeuralSearch waitlist today

Principal Product Manager Dustin Coates gave us an update and demo of our combined keyword and hashed vector search experience, Algolia NeuralSearch. He demonstrated how neural hashing creates intelligent search that is both fast and effective. Most importantly, he announced the waitlist for developers and builders to join the private beta, already in progress. Priority will be given to developers who are already ingesting click and conversion events for their apps.

Index 1 million records on the Algolia Build plan

Algolia CTO Sean Mullaney closed things out with a big announcement! Say hello to the Algolia Build plan, your Search & Discovery playground. It gives builders access to all of Algolia’s platform capabilities so that you can really try things out before ever having to enter a credit card. The Build plan still includes 10k search requests per month, but now includes 1 million records. Just as importantly, it will continue to grow with new APIs and functionality. For instance, when NeuralSearch launches later this year it will automatically show up for all of our builders.

You have the option of selecting the Build plan on all new applications starting today.

See you this summer

We had an absolute blast putting this event together, and are super-excited to bring more developer-forward content your way this summer at Algolia DevCon. See you then!
