The largest Lucene/Solr conference in the world

September 12-15, 2017 Las Vegas, NV


The best way to learn Solr is with hands-on training in a lab-based environment. Our workshop-style classes are developed and taught by Lucene/Solr committers, so participants can learn directly from those who build and work with the platform every day.

Each of our training sessions will cover both Apache Solr and Lucidworks Fusion, Lucidworks' proprietary platform that allows users to quickly and easily deploy and manage their Solr instances. Attendees will leave with the knowledge to build and manage their search apps from the ground up with Apache Solr and the know-how around a set of enterprise tools that make spinning up Solr even easier - allowing teams to spend more time focusing on their core competencies.

Pre-Conference Training will take place on September 12-13.
Each course below is formatted as a one-day session. Training registrants will each select two courses.
