What's New in Lucene/Solr Meetup: 9/22/11 6:30PM


Want to find out what's coming in Apache Lucene/Solr 4.0? Join us for pizza & drinks on Thursday September 22, 2011 from 6:30-8:30PM in Redwood Shores.

This is a Meetup for developers who are currently using Apache Lucene/Solr, or anyone that would like to learn more about open source search.

Current Talks:

"Improved Search with Lucene 4.0"

Robert Muir

This talk will describe how you can apply some of Lucene 4's new features (such as flexible indexing, scoring improvements, column-stride fields) to improve your search application.

“Solr 4.0 Highlights”

Mark Miller

This talk will cover some of the new features and advancements that users can look forward to in Solr 4. The list of topics will include: performance optimizations, further support for near-realtime search, SolrCloud, DirectSolrSpellChecker, and more.


"Lucene-based Search at Greplin"

Shaneal Manek

Greplin is a 'search' company that has many billions of documents sharded
across hundreds of servers. Greplin adds around 2000 documents/second to their index, and well over 5,000/second at peak load.  This talk will expand on the "Thousands of Indexes In The Cloud" Lightning Talk given by Shaneal at Lucene Revolution 2011.


After the scheduled speakers we'll throw the floor open to anyone who would like to talk about how they use Apache Solr or Lucene, challenges they are facing, or complementary tools.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
