Stump the Chump
Got a tough problem with your Solr based application? Facing challenges that you'd like some advice on? Looking for new approaches to overcome a Lucene/Solr issue? Not sure how to get the results you expected? Don't know where to get started? Then this session is for you.

Now, you can get your questions answered live, in front of an audience of hundreds of Lucene/Solr Revolution attendees!  Back again by popular demand, "Stump the Chump" at Lucene Revolution 2016 finds Chris "Hoss" Hostetter in the hot seat once again to tackle questions live.

Questions can be submitted via stump@lucenerevolution.org at any time prior until October 12 - even if you won’t be able to attend the conference.  Please describe in detail the challenge you have faced and possible approach you have taken to solve the problem. Anything related to Solr/Lucene is fair game.

Our moderator, Cassandra Targett, will read the questions, and Hoss will have to formulate a solution on the spot. A panel of judges will decide if he has provided an effective answer. Prizes will be awarded by the panel for the best question - and for those deemed to have "Stumped the Chump".
