Two research projects of NEC and the University of Hannover could not be realized because of technology faults. With Python a 18 year old student from Germany solved the problems and created a new-class metasearch engine for the WWW. The development process with problems like high-volumes of data, web crawling, performances iusses and other topics was easy with Python like with no other programming language.


This presentation will include the following:

  • Reasons Python based search engine development
  • Performance problems and the pythonic solutions
  • Managing masses of data
  • Designing a nice user-interface
  • Statistics and advantages caused by the use of Python
