Hi - I understand that getting a package up and running can be fairly
quick, but going over simple (then complex) examples really helps me
fully understand what's happening. Remember those "perl by Example"
books? I loved that approach to showing concretely what happens every
step of the way. It probably seems dead simple once you've climbed the
learning curve, I just haven't had the time committed to do that yet,
especially in a space with people who could help me.
Yes, it IS all about me. ;)

The preconfs should be as inclusive as possible, but I'm wondering if
the Solr session might be more beneficial if we dive into the
particulars right off the bat in the morning. There are only a few
steps to get Solr up and running -- it's in the configuration for our
custom needs that the advice of a certain Mr. Hatcher can really be
You're right, though, that the NGC thing sounds more like a BOF session.
I'd support that in order to attend a full preconf day of Solr.
