The diverse and widespread adoption of Solr/Lucene for enterprise search applications is reflected by the broad range of both speakers and attendees taking part in the event. Presentations showcased a cross-section of Solr/Lucene users and thought leaders from companies big and small, and demonstrated the use of Solr/Lucene in production-class enterprise search implementations related to new media, ecommerce, embedded search applications, content management, social media, and security and intelligence.

Search application developers and technologists attending from companies as diverse as Boeing, EMC, Amazon.com, NIH, Lockheed Martin, Qualcomm, Time Inc., Comcast, General Electric, Verizon, Motorola, General Dynamics, SAIC, Careerbuilder.com, and many more learned how Solr/Lucene integrates with business intelligence, content management, Hadoop, big data, and the cloud. Speakers from established and innovative companies such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Salesforce.com, IBM, Cisco, eHarmony, MITRE, the Smithsonian, Sears, Lulu, and dozens of others shared their success in breaking the financial and technical handcuffs of commercial, proprietary software to reap the benefits of better, faster, and more effective scalable search applications and search-enabled services.

The next Lucene Revolution is planned for the week of May 16 in San Francisco.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
