Code and DevOps

This track is focused on developers and the back-end technologies to deal with today’s and future challenges. With the coming release of Drupal 8, as well as emerging Web technologies, preparation is essential. These sessions will help you learn how to deliver effective solutions to meet these needs.


In this hands on session, attendees will learn how to setup and integrate Drupal with the Apache Solr search engine.  We’ll discuss advanced Solr setup, inclusion of advanced facets, and other advanced elements that create a great search experience on Drupal/Solr websites. We will also discuss the advantages of using additional tools, such as Tika, with Solr to improve performance and to index documents like PDFs.

If you're interested in how to create a better search experience on your Drupal website, have advanced search integration questions, and you're a web developer that has worked with Drupal and Solr before, this is the session for you.
