Here’s a quick roundup of search-related events coming soon:
Next week Lucene/Solr Revolution is to be held in San Diego, with a couple of days of training on April 29th & 30th and the main event on the 1st and 2nd May. This is probably the biggest event dedicated to Apache Lucene/Solr and features a huge array of presentations from Etsy, Wells Fargo, Lucidworks and even Microsoft who are increasingly supporting open source technologies.
Enterprise Search Europe is next on 15th and 16th May with a day of workshops on the 14th, including one from the Flax team. I’m looking forward to the various open source panels and presentations of course, and hearing from people from Ernst & Young, Neilsen Norman Group, Oracle and the University of Manchester. We’re also running a Meetup event on the first evening, open to all, with the usual informal mix of beer, snacks and search!
Some of the Flax team are hoping to attend Berlin Buzzwords on June 3rd & 4th – this conference promises to address “search”, “store” and “scale” – certainly sounds interesting! We know there will be lots of talks on elasticsearch and Lucene/Solr.
There’s more to come in the Autumn of course – more details when we know them. Hope to meet you at one of these great events!
