Today’s users expect great things from their search experiences — speed, relevance, and usability, to name a few. Algolia provides developers with out-of-the-box and customizable search experiences that are a joy to build.

This introductory course on the Algolia search solution focuses on the user-facing part of search. Using the Algolia InstantSearch.js front-end library, we’ll see how to build an engaging search experience in no time. (28 minutes, to be exact.)

Prerequisites: You don’t need previous experience with search to follow this course — we’ll use an example index with an e-commerce data set preconfigured. We will work mainly in JavaScript, so basic JS knowledge is expected.

If you want to play with your own index settings and data set, you can create a free Algolia account here, but this is not required to follow along with this first course.

    What was your strongest take away from this course?

    I really loved the in depth looks into the widgets and how to implement them. I would have really liked learning about where the data source was from and how to configure the api side of the app. Great Job!
