If you aren't familiar with "Stump The Chump" it is a Q&A style session
where I (the Chump) get put on the hot seat to answer tough / interesting
/ unusual questions about Solr -- live, on stage, in front of hundreds of
people who are laughing at me, with judges who have all seen and thought
about the questions in advance and get to mock me and make me look bad.
It's really a lot of fun.
Even if you won't be at the conference, you can still participate by
emailing your challenging Solr question to [hidden email] (Regardless of whether you already found a solution to a tough problem,
you can still submit it and see what kind of creative solution I might
come up with under pressure.)
Prizes will be awarded at the discretion of the judges, and video should
be posted online at some point soon after the con -- more details and
links to videos of past sessions are in my recent blog post(s)...
