On March 30th, we'll have a tech talk with a special guest from industry, Rahul Singh, Co-founder and CEO of Anant.

Enterprise Search is a challenging problem for most organizations. Public search technologies such as Google can index content and use link popularity to rank content in addition to the basic keyword matches. Enterprise Search is different. Sometimes it requires specially designed indexes as well as several processing steps.

At the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, part of the Department of Commerce, a team of professionals is building the next generation of search tools using open source technologies. Like any large undertaking, it’s not a simple plug and play project.

Main topics to be covered in this talk:

+ Architectures for Large Scale Enterprise Search
+ Leveraging Apache Cassandra & Spark
+ Customizing / Configuring Apache SolR and Indexing
+ Writing a custom Parser for SolR in Scala
