Search Basics Using Lucene.Net

Implementing a custom search function on your site might feel a little intimidating if you've never tried it before, but Lucene makes the task incredibly easy.

I'm a career web developer from Dunedin, New Zealand. I've worked in the software consulting, banking, finance and insurance sectors ahead of joining my current workplace, Intergen. I specialise in the Microsoft .Net web stack and can talk about your next website in-depth using the excellent Umbraco CMS.

Software and support is my passion. I'm focused on the people side of tech and love talking about teams, culture and leadership. I like solving problems in a clear, relatable and simply-explained way. I want people to find computers and software easier to work with and easier to understand. If I'm not doing tech stuff, I'll be playing my drums, enjoying the cricket or spending time with my kids.
