ApacheSolr - The complete search solution

This module integrates Drupal with the Apache Solr search platform. Solr search can be used as a replacement for core content search and boasts both extra features and better performance. Among the extra features is the ability to have faceted search on facets ranging from content author to taxonomy to arbitrary CCK fields.

In this session I'd like to show a complete overview of the possibilities of ApacheSolr and also how to customize it to your likings.

Whether you want to make a rental website with a very easy category searched page or you want to have static searches to show up in a view of your likings. Each of these cases I will try to show you their proof of concept + their downloadable code.

Why should you see this?
If you are interested in a search for your website that in performance and efficiency is one of the best.
If you are a business person and you want to see how to power a huge website with an amazing search.
If you are a developer and you'd like to touch more then just configuration. Code samples will be available to try yourself immediately.

Who am I?
My name is Nick Veenhof and the past 3 years I've been professionally involved in the Drupal world. The last year I focussed on ApacheSolr and it's integration with Drupal. I'm hoping to spread this momentum that is currently circling around ApacheSolr and spread it around the world!

I will not go into very deep details but I'd like to show you some use cases people could have and their proof of concepts built with Drupal 6.

This session will be in English only
