Lucene RevolutionTraining Sessions have now been published for Lucene Revolution, with classes scheduled May 23 and 24 prior to the conference. Workshops include:

  • Developing Search Applications with Lucidworks Enterprise: a 2-day instructor-led, hands-on classroom training course designed and developed by the engineers that developed Lucidworks Enterprise (LWE). The objective of this course is to introduce Lucidworks Enterprise to users with no previous experience working with search applications. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab exercises you will learn how to get up and running with Lucidworks Enterprise, what the components of a search application are, and how to make your content searchable and findable in a search application built on Lucidworks Enterprise. There will be time for questions and discussion to enhance your learning experience.
  • Solr Application Development Workshop is a two-day hands-on training Golden Gateclassroom course designed and developed by the engineers that helped write the Apache Lucene/Solr code. The workshop is targeted at developers who want to build applications with Apache Solr, the Lucene Search Server. You will learn how to set up and use Solr to index and search, how to analyze and solve common problems, and how to use optional Solr modules such as facets, spell check, and highlighting. Lab exercises and real-world examples will be used to reinforce content.
  • Lucene Application Development Workshop is a two day instructor-led hands-on training workshop, written and led by the engineers who helped write the Apache Lucene/Solr code. The objective of this course is to provide you with real life use cases and teach you how to apply Lucene to real business requirements. During the course you will learn to apply best practices in developing scalable, highly available and high performance search applications.
