How to Design Faceted Search
Last updated on 2014-01-03
About the Book
Designing Faceted Search can be a real pain in the neck.
I found it when I had to design one for my web application.
That is also when I learned a ton about how to design Faceted Search the right way.
In this book, I aim to teach everything that I have learned about Faceted Search.
And I hope you like it and enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
