    Seems like it went all right. I had very little prep time, but managed to pull something together for a talk.

    A spectacular job last-minute to put together a super informative introduction to Solr. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Excellent review of Solr. Never knew about the technology before, but definitely looking into it now. And major kudos to Patrick for jumping in with an excellent program created on a very short turnaround. True pro.

    Not going to be able to make it tonight, I would be very interisted in more meetups involving PHP.

    Dave is now unable to give his meetup talk due to unforeseen circumstances. I just sent out a call for a last-minute speaker, so we'll see what happens. Very sorry about the short notice.

    Darn. It. Any chance of a waiting list - or is 50 just a number for chair's sake? ;) Thanks!

      Bumped it to 100. We actually have two rooms reserved that are separated by a partition, so I think Thursday will be one of those times we open it up.
