Join Lucene/Solr/Mahout Committer, Grant Ingersoll, in an open session Hack Night! Bring your laptop, your code, your ideas, and your questions and let's work on Lucene/Solr together! Pizza and beer will be provided.
Since this is a hackathon, the format will be informal. We'll start off with some networking, followed by brainstorming areas people are interested in and then we'll split up into groups.
Some Areas of Interest:
- Writing a Solr Plugin
- Contributing to Lucene and Solr
- Hacking Relevance
- Spatial Search
- Query Parsing
- SolrCloud setup
- Writing Lucene TokenStreams
- Getting Started with Lucene and Solr
- Lucene and Solr 4
Note, if you are planning on working directly on Lucene and Solr, please check out the code ahead of time, so that we all aren't downloading it at once!
