I thought this was a great introduction to a very compelling topic. Sorry I don’t know Ruby. I will learn it.

Becky – I appreciate your feedback, though disappointed that you found it unengaging. It’s a tough format to explain all of Solr in only three hours. I’ll be factoring your feedback into future deliveries, removing some content and expounding on few topics in more depth.

unengaging, not a tutorial, didn’t expand on slides sufficiently
