The almost comprehensive list of resources for developers to evaluate Algolia

Hi there. If you’re here, you’re probably evaluating whether Algolia is the right solution for the problem you’re trying to solve. And you’re probably looking for third party, factual information to do so – bonus points for your peers’ point of view on our technology.

We understand that you might want to forge your opinion based mostly on any content except ours, and we encourage you to do so ☺ But we still want to help you in this process! So we’ve referenced here everything we could find on the internet – favorable or not – as well as all our technical content (documentation, code exchange, customer implementations, …) that we believe could help you make up your own mind about Algolia.

We expect to list more assets as they become available. If you spot anything new, or if we’ve missed something, please let us know.

Enough talking, here’s the list.
