I'm interested presenting something Solr+library related at c4l10.
I'm soliciting ideas from the community on what angle makes the most
sense. At first I was thinking a regular conference talk proposal,
but perhaps a preconference session would be better. I could be game
for a half day session. It could be either an introductory Solr
class, get up and running with Solr (+ Blacklight, of course). Or
maybe a more advanced session on topics like leveraging dismax, Solr
performance and scalability tuning, and so on, or maybe a freer form
Solr hackathon session where I'd be there to help with hurdles or
Thoughts? Suggestions? Anything I can do to help the library world
with Solr is fair game - let me know.
