Sphinx Search - Development, Tuning and Configuration

5 hrs @ $24.99/hr

“Wasim is a first class operator when it comes to provider Sphinx search consulting and I could not have been happier with the work he did for us. We engaged him on a project to take an existing Sphinx implementation that was under performing in terms of search result quality, and attempt to rapidly improve it. These sorts of "emergency repair" project are always difficult because it can be difficult for the engaged consultant to make sense of the current code & configuration.Wasim however excelled at this. I found him to be not only extremely knowledgeable on Sphinx, but his PHP skills and ability to make sense of what other developers have done was amazing. Beyond the technical skills, his consulting skills were first rate. His communication, responsiveness, and general professionalism was outstanding. The work he delivered in just the first two weeks of the project resulted in a significantly improved Sphinx search and as he continued to work on the problem - the results continued to improve.We have already hired Wasim for another contract - and he will continue to be my go-to person for all things Sphinx in the future.”
