Solr is an “open source search platform built upon a Java library called Lucene. Solr is a popular search platform for websites because it can index and search multiple sites and return recommendations for related content based on the search query’s taxonomy.” Solr product features include “full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, real-time indexing, dynamic clustering, database integration, NoSQL features, and rich documents (e.g. MS Word, PDF) handling.”
We bring a consultative approach to training that is based on our real-world Solr implementation. Through a mix of lectures, hands-outs, lab exercises, students will figure out how to apply best practices to create versatile, scalable and high performance Solr applications. All you require is your PC and heaps of questions.
