Hey, how about this? I've been discussing this off list with Erik and
Naomi and this is what we came up with (I also added it to the wiki):

This is a proposal for several pre-conference sessions that would fit
together nicely for people interested in implementing a next-gen
catalog system.

1. Morning session - solr white belt
Instructor: Bess Sadler (anyone else want to join me?)
The journey of solr mastery begins with installation. We will then
proceed to data types, indexing, querying, and inner harmony. You will
leave this session with enough information to start running a solr
service with your own data.

2. Morning session - solr black belt
Instructors: Erik Hatcher (and Naomi Dushay? she has offered to help,
if that's of interest)
Amaze your friends with your ability to combine boolean and weighted
searching. Confound your enemies with your mastery of the secrets of
dismax. Leave slow queries in the dust as you performance tune solr
within an inch of its life. [We should probably add more specific
advanced topics here... suggestions welcome]

3. Afternoon session - Blacklight
Instructors: Naomi Dushay, Jessie Keck, and Bess Sadler
Apply your solr skills to running Blacklight as a front end for your
library catalog, institutional repository, or anything you can index
into solr. We'll cover installation, source control with git, local
modifications, test driving development, and writing object-specific
behaviors. You'll leave this workshop ready to revolutionize discovery
at your library. Solr white belts or black belts are welcome.

And then anyone else who had a topic that built on solr (e.g.,
vufind?) could add it in the afternoon. Obviously I'm biased, but I
really do think the topic of implementing a next gen catalog is meaty
enough for a half day and I know people are asking me about it and
eager to attend such a thing.

What do you think, folks?
