Erik Hatcher participated in Search Hackday as part of Haystack US 2023. His project implemented a Solr-like interface to MongoDB Atlas Search โ€“ which could be a quick way to work with tools like Quepid that are Solr-compatible.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Chennai MUG! Well done to our leaders and speakers: Ijas Ahamed, Jeyaraj Vellaisamy, and Rishi Agrawal.
