This Huge Tech meetup event will give a hands-on demonstration of advanced Solr search features. The goal is to motivate attendees to dig deep into the feature and integrate it into their own websites.

The session will focus on using external data for ranking results and will be followed by a series of guest lightning talks by professionals who use Solr on popular websites.

This meetup is targeted to those who are already familiar with the basics of Solr, but even beginner search coders are encouraged to attend.
