As previously mentioned: On October 13th, Lucene/Solr Revolution 2016 will once again be hosting “Stump The Chump” in which I (The Chump) will be answering tough Solr questions — submitted by users like you — live, on stage, sight unseen.

Today, I’m happy to announce the Panel of experts that will be challenging me with those questions, and deciding which questions were able to Stump The Chump!

In addition to taunting me with the questions, and ridiculing all my attempts to stall while I rack my brain for answers, the Panel members will be responsible for deciding which questions did the best job of “Stumping” me and awarding prizes to the folks who submitted them.

Information on how to submit questions can be found on the session agenda page, and I’ll be posting more details with the Chump tag as we get closer to the conference.

(And don’t forget to register for the conference ASAP if you plan on attending!)
