Let’s get this party started! Many of you have already kicked off two full days of training this week at Lucene/Solr Revolution in beautiful San Diego in advance of the main sessions, and the rest of the crowd will soon join you for the main conference May 1-2. It’s shaping up to be the largest open source enterprise search event of the year and we want to help you maximize your time and networking opportunities. Take a look at the agenda to plan out your activities, and note that the sessions are categorized to help you organize your days to match your interest areas and find people with similar interests.  Please also ask questions of us and your fellow attendees or join ongoing conversations on any of our social and communication channels. You can also familiarize yourself with your event speakers at their social handles below.

We’re excited to have fresh conversations at this year’s gathering  as we welcome all of our community members and some of the industry’s most sought-after speakers, their ideas, insights and probing questions. We hope the event serves well as a meeting of minds to spark powerful discussions and shape the course of open source enterprise search innovation.  We look forward to seeing you all.
