New book: Working with Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint

9780735662223xWe’re happy to announce the availability of Working with Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint, by Mikael Svenson, Marcus Johansson and Robert Piddocke

Although SharePoint has always had search capabilities, those capabilities have been hugely improved by the addition of FAST Search for SharePoint (FS4SP). FS4SP provides a feature-rich alternative to the limited out-of-the-box search experience in SharePoint 2010, and can be extended to meet complex information retrieval requirements. If your organization is looking for a fully configurable and scalable search solution, Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint may be right for you.

The book is aimed squarely at SharePoint architects and developers who are either actively implementing search solutions using FS4SP or who simply want to learn more about how FS4SP works.

The book introduces the core concepts of FS4SP as well as some of the key concepts of enterprise search, then delves into deployment, operations, and development, presenting several “how to” examples of common tasks most administrators or developers will need to tackle as examples. In addition, the book includes two scenarios that showcase the capabilities of FS4SP for Intranet and E-commerce deployments. Beyond the explanatory content, most chapters include step by step examples and downloadable sample projects that you can explore for yourself.

    Great book!   Been reading through it and learned quite a bit.

    Are there any plans on releasing a book about Fast Search For Internet Sites (FSIS)? The documentation on FSIS is *mildly speaking* lacking. I bet all of the FSIS developers out there are crying about a good and thorough FSIS book which would place a special emphasis on CTS and IMS. And please enable custom flow activity development along with external assembly import 🙂

    @ JDM – Interesting that you should ask about a new book. Our editor tells me that he has a proposal for another FAST focused book. He really appreciated your comment on the blog. We'll update everyone if we end up publishing something else in this topic area.
