About this Event

Knowledge is power and big data equals big dollars. Google, Bing, etc. monitor our queries, shove yet another cookie into our browser to track us, then feed their top paying results back to us.
YaCy is an Open Source, decentralized Search Server that you are in control of locally.
If you are searching for it, someone using YaCy has probably already searched for it and indexed it for you.
Ever try to see more than 1000 results on Google?
See what is really out there with YaCy.
We will go over hardware requirements, installation, configuration, and optimizing Solr indexing for best results. This class will short circuit the process and get you productive with YaCy asap.
If you are already a YaCy fan and have your YaCy server running at home, I will show you how to set up YaCy to access relevant "interesting" documents without hitting the darkweb.

Special Considerations and Warnings

Please do not load YaCy on a work computer or on a personal laptop with sensitive information.
YaCy requires certain security measures (which we will cover in class) since it is used in a peer-to-peer configuration much like a bitcoin or an ethereum client.
YaCy has special file and folder access considerations which require administrator access during the installation process (like any other server), so please wait for class to install if you are inexperienced deploying servers.
