Solr is no piece of cake but Borgermans made it accessible
Thanks to the workshop I understood how to deploy solr and use its indexing function at a basic level.
A dive into the usage of Solr as a NoSQL repository would have been good, but 4 hours were too little for that I guess
Borgermans has been quite a good speaker, keeping our attention raised even in that dark room for 4 hours(and that was after lunch).
Useful introduction to Solr and useful and tips too, but the one hour and half spent to help people installing solr in their machine it was too much time wasted, in my opinion.
I knew a bit about Solr since our CMF use it in one of its extensions, but I wasn't aware of its full potential.
The workshop was interesting, beside the waiting for people to install the system as our anonymous friend just said.
