In just under a month, Lucene/Solr Revolution will be coming to Washington D.C. — and once again, I’ll be in the hot seat for Stump The Chump.

If you are not familiar with “Stump the Chump” it’s a Q&A style session where “The Chump” (That’s Me!) is put on the spot with tough, challenging, unusual questions about Lucene & Solr — live, on stage, in front of hundreds of rambunctious convention goers, with judges who have all seen and thought about the questions in advance and get to mock The Chump (still me) and award prizes to people whose questions do the best job of “Stumping The Chump”.

People frequently tell me it’s the most fun they’ve ever had at a Tech Conference — You can judge for yourself by checking out the videos from last years events: Lucene/Solr Revolution 2013 in Dublin, and Lucene/Solr Revolution 2013 in San Diego.

I’ll be posting more details in the weeks ahead, but until then you can subscribe to this blog (or just the “Chump” tag) to stay informed.

And if you haven’t registered for Lucene/Solr Revolution yet, what are you waiting for?!?!
