I recently took the course on Apache Solr Neural Search and I must say it was really good. Alessandro and Ilaria were very knowledgeable and presented the material in a clear and concise manner. They went over the contents at a reasonable pace giving enough time for questions at the end of each section. The training was extremely helpful in understanding the concepts and implementation of vector-based search in Solr.
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to avail of Solr neural search capabilities to improve search experience.
