Is Microsoft joining the Lucene/Solr dance?

Lucene Revolution is only 10 days away, and if you're not already planning on being in Boston, today's a great time to register.

Why be at the 3rd annual Lucene Revolution, Lucid Imagination's open source conference? Several reasons:

  • Open source search is hot, and Lucene/Solr is better than ever;
  • Lucid Imagination is just introducing their LucidWorks Enterprise 2.1 release;
  • Paul Doscher, recently of Exalead, is the new CEO and keynote speaker; and
  • Microsoft's Gianugo Rabellino is speaking about Lucene, Azure, and OSS.

Yes, you saw it here. A Microsoft Azure guy is speaking right after Paul Dorscher Wednesday moring at Lucene Revolution. Has Microsoft caught the drift of the market towards Lucene/Solr in search, big data, and the cloud? Even search pundit Steven Arnold posted a few days back about Microsoft and Linux. Strange bedfellows perhaps, but there it is. 

So yes, I think if you can find any way to get to Boston in a week, I'd say do it. See you there!
