Spring is here and hopefully the longer days mean we can pack them full of great things to do in work & play! This month’s issue is a quick news flash on some things we have planned & on offer for the coming days, weeks & months and hopefully you can join us at some of these events.
2 days to go…
– Apache HTTP: Even if this project doesn’t need an introduction anymore; to celebrate its 17th birthday (and the recently released version 2.4), we would like to invite you to a presentation of the Apache HTTP server and some of the most used modules.
– Insight into Clojure, including syntax & data structures, a common interface to rule them all: sequences, code as data for a programmable programming language (macros) and much more.
ElasticSearch at GOTO night
This time we hope for just as much interest especially seen as we are lucky to line up Shay Banon founder of ElasticSearch, who will host a full hands on session, no slides, driven by real life usage of ElasticSearch.
Our second speaker will be announced later this week. There are limited spaces so make sure you register your interest.
Training session at Berlin Buzzwords
Berlin Buzzwords is the event that focuses on scalable search, data-analysis in the cloud and NoSQL-databases. With more than 30 talks and presentations of international speakers specific to the three tags “search”, “store” and “scale” this year registrations are storming in.
Once again this year we will offer training opportunities the two days following the event (6th & 7th June). On popular demand we will host a special Lucene & Solr training in a location very close to Urania in Berlin.
For all Berlin Buzzwords delegates we offer a EUR 300 discount so for more information & registration check out our website now. Discount code berlinbuzzwordsvip.
GOTO discount for Orange11 blog readers
The GOTO event this year is promised to be even bigger & better, the new location of the Beurs van Berlage (Stock Exchange) is a highlight in itself. As for the top-notch speakers they include some well-known names in the industry including Simon Brown the founder of Coding the Architecture and Greg Young co-founder and CTO of IMIS, a stock market analytics firm in Vancouver BC.

Don’t miss out on our Spring special offer
We mentioned last month that we have launched a special offer for onsite Solr & Lucene training. The Spring Sale offers 25% off a 2-day training offered by our own active and leading Lucene & Solr committers and contributors. The training covers firstly how the Apache Lucene engine operates and thereafter introduces Solr in detail. It also includes advance search functionalities, data indexing and last but not least performance tuning and scalability.
It’s already proved to be very popular, but remember the offer is limited to the month of April so make sure you sign up now via our website.
So if you have any time left over after all the events, our earlier blogs here have also proved a popular read, they covered:
So that ‘s all for now folks, more in the month of May.
