Doug Cutting originally wrote Lucene in 1997-98. While suitable for any application which requires full text indexing and searching capability, Lucene has been widely recognized for its utility in the implementation of Internet search engines and local, single-site searching. In this talk, Doug will share background on the impetus and creation of Lucene, the evolution of the project and its recent integration with Apache Hadoop, and explain what the core technology has enabled today. Doug will also share his thoughts on what the future holds for Lucene and SOLR.
