First Dutch Lucene User Group Meetup

January 20th, 2010 by

August last year, we announced the new Dutch Lucene User Group with the intention to provide a platform for knowledge sharing and discussions for the Lucene community in The Netherlands. Obviously, beyond setting up a dedicated website for that, the main activity of this usergroup should be in the form of periodic meetups. Unfortunately it didn’t work out to execute it last year, but this year we would really like to get it going and put more efforts in it, andĀ first step I guess is setting up a first meetup.

So I’m pleased to announce the first Dutch Lucene User Group Meetup. It will take place on 17th February (Wednesday) at the JTeam headquarters office. This first meetup will be split into two parts:

  • Introduction to the user group and the members. We’ll have a discussion about what we would all like to see coming out of this user group and what activities we would like to have.
  • The next part will be more technical. Anne Veling will share with us some of his experience of large scale Solr deployment that he’s working on.

If you wish to attend, please send us an email to:

Today, the Lucene ecosystem is booming – there’s a high demand for expertise in this field, yet still there is relatively low supply. The Lucene / Solr mailing lists are flooded with hundreds of questions each week and the need to share knowledge is evident.
