During Lucene Eurocon 2011 in Barcelona, a number of us from different search companies met and discussed data conditioning and pipelining (ways to obtain, transform and process data before it is indexed by a search engine). We've started this group to bring these people together on-line and we hope to have physical meetups occasionally as well, at other search-related events. We're not technology or license specific - if you're building or using pipelines or similar processes come and join us, we can share ideas, code and inspiration!
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.
