A slightly different event - we're going to spend a day hacking Lucene and Lucene-based search engines (Solr, Elasticsearch....). You'll need to bring a laptop but there will be ample power points and web access. We held a similar event two years ago (see http://www.flax.co.uk/blog/2016/10/21/tale-two-cities-two-lucene-hackdays/) and we're also running a hackday in London the week before https://www.meetup.com/Apache-Lucene-Solr-London-User-Group/events/252740719/
We don't yet have a plan for what we'll work on - ideas gratefully received though! If you know a JIRA issue that could do with some work or an entirely new feature we could create do let us know in the comments. We'll have several Lucene committers around to guide us and you'll need some Java experience to get fully involved.
Netgovern are kindly lending us a room for the day Lunch will be provided courtesy of SearchStax and we'll go out for drinks afterwards (thanks to One More Cloud, Inc.). Do check out our sponsors at https://www.netmail.com , https://www.searchstax.com/ and https://omc.io/ .
