A .NET Developer's Dive into Riak

We are co-hosting this session with the Brisbane Azure User Group to bring this topic to a wider audience.

Session: A .NET Developer's Dive into Riak

Overview: .NET developers often find that exciting technologies are out of reach due to infrastructure and technology stack constraints. Exciting movements in languages, platforms and data stores aren't always readily available for use as a result.

Thankfully recent work by Basho Technologies has changed the landscape a little. Riak, their Open Source, highly-available, fault-tolerant, distributed key-value store, is now able to run on Azure!

In this talk I will dive into Riak and attempt to explain what it is, how bits of it work, and why it's a good fit for certain types of problems. We'll be looking at examples using CorrugatedIron, the fully-featured Open Source .NET driver for Riak.

Presenter: OJ Reeves is a polyglot geek with long-term roots in the professional Microsoft and .NET circuits. He's active participant in many a UG and an ex-organiser of the local Functional Programming and NoSQL groups here in Brisbane. He's one of the authors of CorrugatedIron, the #1 .NET client for Riak, and has had a passion for Riak since he first discovered it in early 2009.
