Solr is a powerful search engine, but creating a custom user interface can be daunting. In this fast paced session at Lucene/Solr Revolution, Daniel Beach, Search Application Developer at OpenSource Connections, will present an overview of how to implement a client-side search application using Solr.

Using open-source frameworks like SpyGlass can be a powerful way to jumpstart your development by giving you out-of-the box results views with support for faceting, autocomplete, and detail views. During this talk, Daniel will also demonstrate how they have built and deployed lightweight applications that are able to be performant under large user loads, with minimal server resources.

This intermediate level session will take place from 11:55-12:40 on Wednesday, November 6. Click here for more details.
