  • submit to reddit
With less than a week before the highly-technical (and search focused) Lucene Revolution conference, DZone got a chance to speak with Erik Hatcher of Lucid Imagination.  Erik tells us about his Lucene Revolution tutorial session on "Rapid Prototyping with Solr."  We also had an opportunity to discuss some of the buzz around Solr and Lucene 4.x.

Erik Hatcher is the co-author of "Lucene in Action" as well as  co-author of "Java Development with Ant". Erik has been an active member of the Lucene community - a leading Lucene and Solr committer, member of the Lucene Project Management Committee, member of the Apache Software Foundation as well as a frequent invited speaker at various industry events. Erik earned his B.S. in Computer Science from University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA.

Check the Lucene Revolution site for conference agenda, pricing, some early bird discounts and training specials may still be available. Don't miss this once a year opportunity!
