What attendees say

Sematext was an ideal training partner for We had just recently adopted Elasticsearch on a new project, and they gave us two days of solid training that was tailored to our team’s needs. The material was built atop strong foundations and moved quickly into advanced areas around querying, Lucene internals, and cluster performance. It was clear that it was all informed by real-world experience operating these systems at scale.

I had to leave before the last class ended unfortunately. But had I been there I would have given you a mini-speech to tell you how awesome you were! ☺️

Thank you so much for being such a fantastic, patient, and effective instructor throughout this 4-day training. Personally, I appreciated the clarity and expertise in the material and the class.
I also thought the class was meticulously structured over the 4 days, each day not feeling too long, and with the right number of breaks – this made me feel like I had the capacity to learn the things planned for the day without feeling too overwhelmed. Having the course material is great for the team to revisit later.

Overall, we really felt like we learned a lot. To put it in perspective, <name redacted for privacy> (who worked with <name redacted> and <name redacted>) already applied some of the lessons from the training in one of our customer throughput issues today. A big progress for the team. And, I am sure we will continue to apply in the future too – I just want you to know that you have clearly influenced us ☺️

For a non-native English speaker student, this course was a crystal clear explanation of Solr and all the sweetest juice you can extract from your text searches. Even if you think you know enough Solr, I wholeheartedly recommend this course for you.

Thank you for a very informative training, such a wealth of information that I truly enjoyed learning about.

If you are serious about getting Solr right, this is the course for you. Simply put, it’s the best Solr instruction for those who want to master this domain and use Solr in the real world

Not your typical by-the-book training. Radu was engaging and was a great guide in our journey through Elasticsearch.

The Intermediate and Advanced Solr Training went very well. A few of the things I liked:

— The intermediate and advanced command files included in the training material were very helpful. I’m still referring to them after taking the class as I look more in-depth into the various features.
— The provided example data and scripts to load the data into Solr are another big time saver. Also, this gives me something to refer to as I review the training notes.
— The hands-on exercise/labs

The training covered several Solr features e.g., streaming aggregation, JSON API, etc. that we haven’t really used yet, but may be very useful to us in the future.
