If you're anything like me you've avoided using Apache Solr for your search needs. Who has time to learn another technology, written in another programming language? And using the built-in database search with the Search API module works just fine, right?
In this session we'll go through the basics of setting up a Solr server, connecting it to Drupal, and using it to return search results. All inside of an hour!
We'll discover together that running a Solr instance isn't as daunting as it may seem, and we'll look at the benefits of what using Solr for search can do for your website.
