You don't need billions of dollars or users to build a user-friendly search application. In fact, studies of how and why people search have revealed a set of principles that can  result in happy users who find what they're seeking with as little friction as possible -- and help you build a better, more successful search application.
 
Join special guest Tyler Tate, user experience designer at UK-based TwigKit Search, for a high-level discussion of key user interface strategies for search that can be leveraged with Lucene and Solr. The presentation covers:  
* Ten things to know about designing the search experience
* When to assume users know what they���re looking for ��� and when not to
* Navigation/discovery techniques, such as faceted navigation, tag clouds, histograms and more
* Practical considerations in leveraging suggestions into search interactions
