Introduction to Apache Solr from arafalov

Welcome to the collection of resources to make Apache Solr more comprehensible to beginner and intermediate users. While Solr is very easy to start with, tuning it is - like for any search engine - fairly complex. This website will try to make this simpler by compiling information and creating tools to accelerate learning Solr. The currently available resources are linked in the menubar above. More resources will be coming shortly.
