If you’re considering adding search capabilities to your Rails app, and you’re going to be in Richmond VA this Tuesday, do yourself a favor: come out and learn what Solr can do for your application from 6 to 8 pm. Lucid Imagination’s own Erik Hatcher will present on Solr fundamentals to the Central Virginia Ruby Enthusiast Group. Erik will demonstrate its features live through the command-line and browser, and delve into working with Solr through Ruby. After all of the flashy cool stuff, Erik will talk about production considerations for deploying Solr for real such as scaling via replication and distributed search.
