"Solr is Hard" and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves

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.
