See our popular Apache Solr Tutorial for Beginners on this website with links to YouTube videos.
We start with introductory material when building a Solr test environment and then the difficulty level picks up. We identify the difficulty level on each web page.
At the beginner level, information on Apache Solr is generally high-level and more general. These topics cover the general features of Solr search, its capabilities and how to plan a course of action for your specific needs.
At this level you have likely committed to using Apache Solr professionally as your search application. Here we focus on installation, search concepts and customization. We dig into the configuration files, schemas, topics on indexes and building out search features.
Here you are proficient with Solr and are ready to move your search application to a production environment. Topics here include coding the front-end of the application, scaling, SolrCloud, Lucene and sharing data across applications in the back end with APIs.
