Search Engine Death Match (Pt. 3) MPLS CFUG

I'll be speaking to the Minneapolis/St. Paul ColdFusion User Group (CFUG) on Aug. 6, 2009 about the Solr Integration in ColdFusion 9 (Centaur Beta). If you're in the area we'd love to see you, session starts at 6:30 - more information at

Search Engine Death Match: Solr (Luncene) vs. Verity

Search is King.
See how the 2 engines that ship with ColdFusion 9 stack up.
Learn more about the newly integrated Solr (based on Java Lucene) engine and how it stacks up against Verity.
Listen to real world stories about Solr's performance in a large scale Enterprise application.
Preview the features of Solr in Centaur Beta and determine if you're company could benefit from a better, more scalable, more reliable search solution.

Here is a preview of the session (pdf).

Hope you see you there!

Hi Kevin, would you be interested in offering that talk on the Online ColdFusion Meetup (, sometime in the future? (after you present at the Twin Cities CFUG, of course)

As you may know, the CFMeetup being online means that anyone anywhere in the world could join in to watch, and I'm sure many would appreciate the talk.

The same offer goes to anyone else reading this (or that you may mention it to). Just have folks visit the site to learn more about how the group works, how easy it is to speak, when we have meetings, how to reach me to propose a talk, etc. Any topic is welcome, new or old, beginner or advanced.

Kevin, I'll assume I'll get notified of any reply you offer here (I see no option to get notified) or that you can contact a commenter directly. Hope you'll consider it, but either I hope the talk goes well for you.
