Semantic Search with Apache Solr
This talk will provide an overview of what Semantic Search is and a brief introduction of how to implement a Semantic search system using the capabilities of Apache Solr. The goal is to create a substantially more relevant search experience for users.
Google Cloud Search
This talk will provide an overview of Google’s latest venture into enterprise search. The nostalgic yellow GSA hardware has now been retired to make way for the best search features that today’s information workers expect and only the cloud can really offer. The presentation will provide details into how companies can adopt the cloud search experience, what features are available today and a look into what Google has in store for the future of search.
Java is a language in evolution. There are a handful of language changes in Java 9 and 10 plus several JDK changes in 9, 10, 11, and 12. Some of these changes are significant in that they allow us to do things more effectively than before. The difference can be anywhere from reducing code to avoiding errors that come from verbosity. In this presentation we will explore the language changes first. Then we will visit the additions to the JDK. Along the way we will also look at a few things that have been removed from Java as well.
You’ve probably heard of MicroProfile, but how do you go from buzz to production? In this code-heavy, interactive presentation, we’ll describe how to use OpenTracing (http://opentracing.io/) with Jaeger (https://www.jaegertracing.io/) and annotations in MicroProfile and other Microservice architectures to reliably improve and deploy updated versions your applications to OpenShift and Kubernetes in the cloud. Topics include best practices for performance analysis, maintaining delivery pipelines using the Linux command line, plus tips on the best free OpenTracing tools and SDKs available on GitHub.
NOTE: This meeting is NOT on our normal "second-Thursday" schedule.
