Apache Lucene: Then and Now

*Please take a moment to review the Check-In Process at Twitter to ensure a smooth entry into the event.

Doug Cutting originally wrote Lucene in 1997-98. While suitable for any application which requires full text indexing and searching capability, Lucene has been widely recognized for its utility in the implementation of Internet search engines and local, single-site searching. In this talk, Doug will share background on the impetus and creation of Lucene, the evolution of the project and its recent integration with Apache Hadoop, and explain what the core technology has enabled today. Doug will also share his thoughts on what the future holds for Lucene and SOLR.

    Is there a webinar available for this? It is difficult to make it for people who are working around south bay during weekdays.
