There aren't any open polls.
There is a blossoming of search technology usage in Melbourne, but a definite lack of an unofficial, relaxed gathering to allow some fruitful information and experience exchange.
Our aim is to make the meetup more welcoming to all search developers in Melbourne who are facing similar challenges -- while maintaing the level of technical depth that we've come to enjoy.
Search technologies include, but are not limited to: ElasticSearch, Apache Lucene & Solr, AWS CloudSearch, Microsoft FAST, Apache Nutch.
Join us for pizza, beer, and discussion about search tech!
Please feel free to suggest quick (15 minute) presentations - whether a problem you've solved, a problem you need help solving or a general interesting experience of using search technologies.
