ONE NIGHT ONLY!
THURSDAY OCTOBER 15TH!
LIVE AT THE HILTON AUSTIN!STUMP! THE! CHUMP!

It’s that time of year again folks…

Six weeks from today, Stump The Chump will be coming to Austin Texas at Lucene/Solr Revolution 2015.

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 Solr & Lucene — live, on stage, in front of hundreds of rowdy convention goers, with judges (who have all had a chance to review and think about the questions in advance) taking the opportunity to mock The Chump (still me) and award prizes to people whose questions do the best job of “Stumping The Chump”.

If that sounds kind of insane, it’s because it kind of is.

You can see for yourself by checking out the videos from past events like
Lucene/Solr Revolution Dublin 2013 and Lucene/Solr Revolution 2013 in San Diego, CA. (Unfortunately no video of Stump The Chump is available from Lucene/Solr Revolution 2014: D.C. due to audio problems.)

Information on how to submit questions is available on the conference website.

I’ll be posting more details as we get closer to the conference, but until then you can subscribe to this blog (or just the “Chump” tag) to stay informed.
