2011 Preconference Proposals
Proposals for 2011 Code4LibCon Preconferences
Proposals will close Friday November 19 so we can finalize the list and add them to registration!
We'll have space for up to 3 full-day pre-conferences and 3-6 half-day pre-conferences.
Please include a "Contact/Responsible Individual" name and email address so we know who is willing to put on the proposed precon.
What's New In Solr
- Description: The library world is fired up about Solr. Practically every next-gen catalog is using it (via Blacklight, VuFind, or other technologies). Solr has continued improving in some dramatic ways, including geospatial support, field collapsing/grouping, extended dismax query parsing, pivot/grid/matrix/tree faceting, autosuggest, and more. This session will cover all of these new features, showcasing live examples of them all, including anything new that is implemented prior to the conference.
- Duration: half-day
- Speaker Bio: Erik has spoken at several code4lib conferences (Keynoted Athens '07 along with the infamous pioneering Solr preconference, presented at Providence '09, and pre-conferenced Asheville '10). Erik co-authored "Lucene in Action", and he's a Lucene and Solr committer. His library world claims to fame are founding and naming Blacklight, original developer on Collex and the Rossetti Archive search.
