We're participating in three events in Glasgow, London and Boston over the next couple of months - details in my blog at http://www.flax.co.uk/blog/2016/08/24/not-one-three-lucene-hackdays-coming-soon/ . Very interested in any ideas the community has about what we should try to achieve! The Boston one is the same week as Lucene Revolution in case you're in town.
