Need to turn petabytes of data into Solr indexes? Want to use Solr as a powerful analytics engine? Interested in applying machine learning algorithms to your data? Learn how to use Solr with big data tools like Hadoop, Cascading, and Mahout at a pre-conference workshop. This popular class is filling quickly and won’t be offered again until the next Revolution, so don’t miss your chance to attend! And there’s more…

Three 2-day training workshops will precede Lucene/Solr Revolution EU. Course materials are generated by the same people who originally developed and continue to build Solr. Quite simply, there is no better source for learning Solr on the planet.

Upgrade your knowledge to Solr4–Already know a lot about Solr? With the release of Solr4, there is plenty of new material to learn. Pre-conference courses are taught on Solr4.

Learn from the experts–Our course materials are generated by the same people who originally developed and continue to build Solr. Quite simply, there is no better source for learning Solr on the planet.

Hands-on approach–In our experience, the best way to learn Solr is by doing it through lab-based exercises. As a result, students can expect to “begin building something” within the first five minutes of our workshop-style classes.

The three 2-day workshops are as follows:

BIG DATA & SOLR – Using Solr with Big Data

The twenty modules and five labs teach participants about the essential technologies for generating both traditional Solr search indexes and NoSQL/analytics “databases” using Hadoop, Cascading, Cassandra, Mahout and Storm. By the end of the class, students will understand both good and bad use cases for these popular “big data” technologies, and how they can be used to create larger, more sophisticated search and analytics solutions based on Solr.

SOLR UNLEASHED – A Hands-On Workshop for Building Killer Search Apps

Is your Solr installation bullet-proof? Will it really scale the way you think it will? Is your relevancy not cutting it? Let the Solr experts show you the right way to implement all the platform capabilities you need to be using, but probably aren’t. You will walk away confidant that your Solr installation is implemented in the best possible way—rock solid and scalable. This course is taught using Solr 4.x.

SOLR UNDER THE HOOD – Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Solr

Okay, so you know how to implement Solr. Ever wonder how it actually works on the inside? This hands-on class will walk you through the internals and show you how to troubleshoot and tune Solr for maximum performance. This course is taught using Solr 4.x. Click here for details and a full course outline.
