Here at SpringSense we’ve noticed that there is a blossoming of Apache Solr/Lucene usage and development in Melbourne, but we’re missing an unofficial, relaxed gathering to allow some fruitful information and experience exchange.
We’re trying to put together a laid back meet up for developers (and other interested people) who are currently using Apache Solr (and/or Lucene) or would like to learn more about it. Aiming for it to be a high signal/noise ratio group, with meet ups probably once every two months.
The first meet up is still TBD, but please join the group if you’re keen to join us for pizza, beer, and a discussion about Solr once we figure out the date of the first meeting.
Also, please feel free to suggest quick (15 minute) presentations - whether it be a problem you’ve solved, a problem you need help solving or a general interesting experience of using Solr.
We’re keeping registrations here: http://www.meetup.com/melbourne-solr/
Feel free to pass to co-workers, colleagues who would be interested.
