Firebird Conference 2016, Announce #3: PSQL Full-Text Search and .NET provider
We continue to publish announces of talks at Firebird Conference 2016, which will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, October 7-8 (only 1 week left to register to Firebird Conference 2016 with Early Bird discount!). Today we announce the talks from Jiri Cincura, developer of Firebird .NET driver and Firebird+.NET development trainer.

How to implement the full-text search using only PSQL
Firebird at the moment does not have a native support for the full-text search. So you are either out of luck or you have to use syntax using the LIKE or CONTAINING expressions. Luckily when lowering the bar a little (what features the search has to cover) and focusing on core functionality, it is possible to create the very fast full-text search using only fairly simple PSQL and some out-of-the-box thinking. Production examples will be included.

What's new in Firebird.NET Provider
With the release of Firebird 3.0 a lot has changed in .NET provider. Some features from Firebird 3 are already supported now and also a lot of changes and improvements in other areas have been done. This session will walk you through most of these improvements and changes and will show you how to use these and show how these work in Firebird and how you can benefit from using them.
