Using Solr/Lucene to Surface the Big Data of Social Media

Although you need Big Data to effectively implement a large scale social media solution, Hadoop is not always the right tool. This implementation description details how Zoosk is using Solr/Lucene as a NoSql solution to meet the near real-time Big Data needs of a social news feed in its evolution into a Romantic Social Network.

8:00 Networking & finishing the last of the beer.

    Good talks. Hoss was as entertaining and informative as ever - the impromptu Stump The Chump was fun. Glenn's talk was interesting, and informative. Where are all the people looking for jobs? So many offers, and no takers ;-)

    FWIW, my slides are online, but they may not be very interesting out of context: https://people.apache.org/~hossman/solr[masked]meetup/

    We should have room for everyone, even if we hit the 100 attendee limit, since some people won't show. So come on down and join us tonight!
