Training.

The best way to learn Solr & Fusion is with hands-on training in a lab-based environment.

There is no better way to learn how to build and manage Apache Solr and Lucidworks Fusion than from the experts who work on the platforms every day. Our workshop-style courses will provide attendees with the know-how to spin up and optimize sophisticated search applications.

Training courses are broken out by Apache Solr and Lucidworks Fusion, Lucidworks’ proprietary platform that allows users to quickly and easily deploy, manage, and integrate AI into their search applications. All courses are taught in a hands-on lab-based format using the most current versions of Apache Solr and Lucidworks Fusion.

Each course below is formatted as a one-day session. Training registrants will select two courses each.

COURSE SUMMARIES

Solr Foundations

This course introduces Apache Solr, the most widely used open source search engine. You will learn fundamental search concepts and the key role that Solr plays in the modern data ecosystem. At the end of this course, you’ll be able to index and query data to and from Solr, and build basic search applications.

BEST FOR

Anyone. This course is the starting point for everyone wishing to learn about Solr.

PRE-REQUISITE

None. Experience with command line tools is helpful.

Advanced Solr Development

This course will deep-dive into advanced querying capabilities such as geospatial, phrase, and function queries; tuning relevance to meet specific domain requirements; and the Solr architecture. At the end of this course, you will be able to build sophisticated, horizontally-scalable search applications.

BEST FOR

Developers who plan to build a search platform from scratch with Solr. (Those who plan to use Lucidworks Fusion should instead attend the Fusion courses.)

PRE-REQUISITE

All attendees must first take the Solr Foundations course or have at least 1 year of experience working with Apache Solr.

Foundations of Lucidworks Fusion

Come learn about how Fusion 4 can help maximize your data accessibility. Explore the latest capabilities of Fusion, Lucidworks’ flexible and user-friendly search application development platform. Fusion is built with an open core of Apache Solr and Spark and enhanced with additional features that accelerate the creation and deployment of modern search applications. You will learn the fundamental concepts of working with Fusion, including ingestion and indexing, query and syntax, and a review of multi-node topologies. By understanding the full extent of the platform’s distributed capabilities, you will be able to construct and optimize sophisticated search and data-driven applications.

BEST FOR

This course is the starting point for everyone looking to learn anything about Fusion. Those who have worked with Fusion 2.x or 3.x will learn about the newest features in Fusion 4. Architects, developers, and business users who are working on or considering a Fusion-based solution implementation will benefit from this course.

PRE-REQUISITE

None. Apache Solr or search application experience is not required. Experience with command line tools is helpful.

Lucidworks Fusion for Advanced Search Application Developers

Learn how to deliver powerful, intuitive search experiences at large internet scales. Expanding on topics introduced in the Foundations of Lucidworks Fusion class, this course will teach you how to calibrate your search apps for optimal relevance. Explore Fusion’s experimentation framework and the use of signals and telemetry to enhance user experiences and allow for in-depth usage analysis. You will also be introduced to Fusion SQL, which enables self-serve analytics at massive scale.

BEST FOR

Architects and developers who are working on or considering a Fusion-based solution and want to fine-tune their Fusion applications to significantly improve search and user experience.

PRE-REQUISITE

All attendees must first take the Foundations of Lucidworks Fusion course.

Lucidworks Fusion AI

The Lucidworks Fusion AI training is the right choice for those interested in taking Fusion applications to the next level. This course explores how you can enrich your data through techniques such as automatic classification, document clustering, anomaly detection, and natural language processing, and make it available to your applications. You will also learn how to use techniques such as query intent detection, signals and recommendations, automatic synonym generation, and automatic mis-spelling corrections in order to deliver the most personalized, contextual information and insights using the enriched data.

BEST FOR

Architects and developers who are working on or considering a Fusion-based solution and are planning to implement Fusion’s machine learning capabilities.

PRE-REQUISITE

This training will introduce advanced Fusion 4 topics and requires all attendees first take the Lucidworks Fusion Foundations course.

Lucidworks Fusion App Studio

Learn how to connect people with data by building beautiful, modern, front-end applications using App Studio. With this intuitive toolkit, full stack developers with limited UI experience can easily build custom applications in days rather than months. In this course, you will learn a powerful markup language that encapsulates commonly used UX patterns, and see how it can be used to effectively present insights across multiple use cases and verticals. You will also explore wizard-driven templates that provide starter applications for use cases such as site search and enterprise search within minutes and learn how to tailor them to your needs.

BEST FOR

Architects and developers who are working on or considering a Fusion-based solution and want to considerably reduce development time to build a custom front-end application.

PRE-REQUISITE

All attendees must first take the Foundations of Lucidworks Fusion course. Experience with UI development is helpful, but not required.
