It means you can dramatically reduce round trips from your front end Web server to your backend services or database. So what does that mean? You'll have a really fast Web site. Lucene can be configured to crawl your data and index it all locally on your servers. It can then be quickly searched using Linq to return data to your application. In this session, you'll learn about Lucene and how to implement it in your applications.

You will learn:

  • What Lucene is and why you should use it
  • The basics on how to install, configure, and query Lucene
