LucidWorks is not just devoted to offering quality out-of-the-box solutions for the enterprise, they are also heavily invested in advancing open source search technology in general. Take for instance their newest offering, “A Hands-On Workshop for Building Killer Search Apps.” Read more about this three-day class:
Having consulted with clients on Lucene and Solr for the better part of a decade, we’ve seen the same mistakes made over and over again: applications built on shaky foundations, stretched to the breaking point. In this 3 day class, learn from the experts about how to do it right and make sure your apps are rock solid, scalable, and produce relevant results. Also check the course outline.
Developers who are interested in producing high-quality search applications based on Solr should consider attending. Whether or not you or your organization can function at the highest level of enterprise development, your organization can still count on LucidWorks for quality open source search enterprise solutions. Sometimes an intuitive flexible pre-made solution that is supported is a better option for an organization that does not have the time or resources to devote to a custom created solution. So LucidWorks has the best of both worlds, training and developer tools for those who need it, and quick solutions for those who need a faster option.
