OSC’s Scott Stults and Michael Herndon are currently at Lucene Revolution and Scott was interviewed by CMSWire about the value of getting a Solr certification. You can watch his interview at the CMSWire coverage of day 1 of Lucene Revolution.




OSC principal Eric Pugh took part in developing the Solr certification test with Lucid Imagination. You can read his thoughts on the value of the Solr certification exam.

"I expect that the Lucid Imagination certification will quickly become
the gold standard benchmark for whether someone who claims Solr and
Lucene expertise truly possesses it. Oftentimes, a buyer of services has
to take the leap of faith from sales pitch to execution that the
knowledge is truly there. This certification can show, without a doubt,
that the holder truly has the knowledge required to deliver a successful
Lucene/Solr implementation.  -From Reuters, Eric Pugh
