Join us on Tuesday, February 18th at 7 pm at the Drupal NoVA meetup at Bixal in Fairfax, VA.

Ken Rickard of will be doing a *remote* presentation on Federated Search with Drupal, SOLR, and React.

With the announcement that the Google Search Appliance was End of Life, many universities started looking around for replacement options. At Palantir, we wanted to provide an open source option that could solve the following needs:

A simple way to store, retrieve, and parse content.
A cross-platform search application.
A speedy, usable, responsive front-end.
A flexible, extensible, reusable model.
A drop-in replacement for deprecated Google Products

Working with the University of Michigan, we architected and developed a solution. We'll do a live demo of the application and have time for Q&A.

You can read more about it at

***Please see the GoToMeeting info below to join remotel. Ken's presentation will start at 7:30 pm and last between 45-60 minutes with Q&A.****

Our regular meetup is the third Tuesday of every month at Bixal in Fairfax.

Appetizers, beer and non-alcoholic drinks will be served.

Look forward to seeing you there!
