Exciting news…. a new book, “Solr in Action” has arrived covering Solr 4! The book is co-authored by two extremely knowledgeable folks, Trey Grainger and Timothy Potter. Both of these guys are deep in the trenches of using Solr in big (data) ways at their day jobs, so they speak and write with experience. Trey presented “Building a Real-Time Solr-Powered Recommendation Engine” (video of his session is available too!) at the 2012 Lucene Revolution, and Timothy presented “Boosting Documents in Solr by Recency, Popularity and Personal Preferences” at the 2011 Lucene Revolution.
The book is available through Manning’s Early Access Program (MEAP), which allows you to get the content as soon as the authors complete it. There are over four chapters available now, and the rest coming soon. Don’t wait, as you can get a 50% discount on this book if you get it today or tomorrow using the discount code “12solraa”.
