Next monday, October 7th, I’ll be in Chicago joining the “Enterprise Search Chicago” meetup.com group for “An Evening With Apache Solr” at 7PM.

We’ll be having 2 presentations: Andy Lester will discuss lessons learned migrating an application from Oracle “full text” to Solr; and (by request) I’ll be presenting on Result Grouping (aka: Field Collapsing) and how it compares to the recently added Block Join features in Solr.

Afterwords, we’ll have an “open” Q&A. (Any and all questions about Solr will be welcome, even if they have nothing to do with the material presented)

If you are in the chicago area and would like to come, please RSVP via meetup.com so we can get an accurate headcount.
