"Scaling search with SolrCloud"

Search engines are widely used on many projects and in different domains allowing a user to have an advanced full-text search capability. And nowadays with the high demand in processing huge volumes of data solutions provided and that is why search servers need to be optimized for high-volume traffic, highly scalable, and fault-tolerant. Apache Solr includes the ability to set up a cluster of Solr servers, SolrCloud, combines all the features listed above.

A speech will cover general acquaintance with SolrCloud and how it works and sheds light on cluster component “logical” concepts layered on top of “physical” concepts and features and more: traditional Solr systems overview, SolrCloud terminology, Shards, leaders, replicas, and other concepts, scaling with the SolrCloud architecture, central configuration and cluster coordination with ZooKeeper. Why do I need it? You don’t unless you want to get some introductory of getting to know how scalable search systems work

"Quarkus - make microservices "micro" again"

Nowadays, microservice development is not just mainstream, it has become an over-hyped buzzword. However, very often microservices are anything but "micro" considering resource footprint of frameworks like Spring Boot. Microframeworks are trying to fix this by promoting a set of concepts and programming approaches, that drastically reduce resource consumption and startup times of the service. During this talk, we're going to have a look at one of the most promising players on the Java microframeworks field - Quarkus. We will explore underlying concepts, programming model, possible integrations with the rest of the microservice ecosystem and more.
