Solr for newbies workshop

The repository contains the materials for the Solr for newbies workshop at Code4Lib 2019.

File workshop.md has most of the material that we will cover during the workshop. In order to have a textual record of the commands to execute (along with their parameters and output) all the examples in this file are shown as executed via command line utilities like cURL. However, during the workshop we will use a combination of approaches, some steps will be executed through the command line while others will be done through the admin web page that Solr provides out of the box.

File workshop.pdf has the same content as workshop.md but in PDF format and it's downloadable.

Files slides.key and slides.pdf are the slides with some "big picture" diagrams to support the material in workshop.md.

File books.json has the sample data that we will use during the workshop.

Folder scripts/ has a few scripts that can be used to automate the steps of adding documents or fields to the Solr core used in the tutorial. These scrips just bundle steps documented in workshop.md.
