Lucene Case Studies

How are the Lucene technologies being used in the real world? This fast-paced talk presents many applications leveraging lucene.apache.org technologies, including Java Lucene, Solr, Nutch, and Mahout. We'll see how Lucene powers more library searches, sells more shoes, rents more videos, books more hotels, than high priced closed-source alternatives. We'll delve deeply into Lucid Imagination's search system for the Lucene community, how we continuously index web, wiki, mail, code, and database data sources and present them elegantly.
