>                 Key: SOLR-6748
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-6748
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: documentation
>            Reporter: Xavier Morera
> I would like to request the addition of an online training I created for 
> Pluralsight called *Getting Started with Enterprise Search using Apache Solr* 
> in the following page: http://lucene.apache.org/solr/resources.html
> It is not exactly a video only, it is an online training so no idea if it 
> should be added beneath videos or separately.
> It aims to take a developer with absolutely no knowledge of Solr or even 
> search engines, to take them into being able to create a basic POC style 
> application with Solr in the backend. A few thousand people have watched it 
> and I have received very positive feedback on how it has helped people get 
> started very quickly and reduce the entry level barrier.  
> Is this possible? The url of the training is:
> http://www.pluralsight.com/courses/table-of-contents/enterprise-search-using-apache-solr
> I believe it will help a lot of people get started quicker.
> Here is the full story of how this training came to be:
> A while back I was a Solr total rookie, but I knew I needed it for one of my 
> projects. I had a little bit of a hard time getting started, but I did after 
> a lot of hard work and working with other pretty good Solr developers.
> I then worked and created a system which is doing pretty good now. But I 
> decided that I wanted to create a resource that will help people with 
> absolutely no knowledge of Solr or search engines get started as quickly as 
> possible. And given that I am already a trainer/author at Pluralsight, who 
> focused mainly on Agile development, I thought this was the right place to 
> start helping others.
> And so I did. I have received positive feedback, and given my background as a 
> trainer I have also given it as "Solr for the Uninitiated", also for people 
> with no previous knowledge of Solr. 
> It has also been received well to the extent that I have been hired to make 
> it into a book, which I am writing at the moment.
