Lucene/Solr Revolution 2017 in Las Vegas is just five short months away. As we’re planning for an exciting conference, we’re reflecting on noteworthy moments from years past.
(Don’t forget to register for this year’s conference by April 30th to take advantage of Super Early Bird prices.)

Here are some of our favorite #LuceneSolrRev moments:

When Bloomberg walked us through their search architecture consisting of hundreds of search apps with over 10 Billion docs, and 10 Million new docs daily!: Watch Video Here


When we learned how the National Institutes of Health uses Solr for searching large scale biomedical data: Watch Video Here

…and that fruit flies and humans are more similar than we realized.


When we went to Austin and ate tacos for a week straight.

So. Many. Tacos.


That one time we squeezed 18 Solr committers on one stage for a panel: Watch Video Here

Cuddle up y’all!


When Grant Ingersoll gave a presentation made of purely emojis: Watch Video Here

Because who doesn’t love emojis?


The time we learned how literally one of the world’s most popular brands uses Solr at massive scale: Watch Video Here

Kind of a big deal.


The time we attempted to host Stump the Chump in a bar….

Hey, no one’s perfect. AMIRITE?


When Shutterstock taught us how to search images by color with Solr: Watch Video Here

Mind = Blown


And when we found out why some of the committers really attend the conference…

Friends don’t judge.


We could go on forever, because every moment spent with the Solr community is truly special <3

We hope to create new memories with you at this year’s conference, September 12-15 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Register today!
