DC/NOVA Lucene & Solr meetup

May 4, 2009

My company is co-sponsoring a Lucene/Solr meetup later this month in the Northern VA / DC area (Reston).  Details will be coming out soon. We’ve got one night of talks planned and considering adding another consecutive night.  If you’re in the area and have a Lucene (any of the Lucene family of projects, including Mahout, Solr, Tika, etc)
project you’re eager to discuss for 20-30 minutes, write me offline and tell me about it.
