I’m excited to announce that Stump The Chump is coming to Sinsheim, Germany for Lucene Eurocon @ ApacheCon EU.

If you aren’t familiar with “Stump the Chump” it’s a Q&A style session where “The Chump” (that would be me) gets put on the hot seat to answer tough / interesting / unusual questions about Lucene & Solr — live, on stage, in front of hundreds of people who are laughing at me, with judges who have all seen and thought about the questions in advance and get to mock me and make me look bad.

You can check out video’s of past sessions at Lucene Revolution 2012, Lucene Eurocon 2011, and Lucene Revolution 2011 to see how awesome it is. If you’d like to submit any questions for the session, you can email them to stump@lucene-eurocon.org.

I’ll be posting more updates about the session — including announcements about the moderator, prizes, and panel of judges — to this blog as we get closer to the confrence, so you can subscribe to this blog (or just the “Chump” tag) to stay informed.

See you in Sinsheim!
