Hi - I'd also like a basic, get it running from scratch primer half day.
Something with meaty examples that hit on what solr is best at. I "get"
solr in a strategic sense, but I'd love to have seen it actually work

If you'd be up for it Erik, I'd envision a basic session in the morning.
Some of us (like me) have never gotten Solr up and running.
Then the afternoon could break off for an advanced session.
Though I like Bess's idea, too! Would that be suitable for a conference
breakout? Not sure I'd want to pit it against Solr advanced session!
