No, not yet a Riak meetup per se, but preparation for our 2.0 release proceeds apace. In the meantime, you can hear Reid Draper talk about Basho's processes and tools for managing Riak development in September.
Chicago Erlang Conference is back for 2014 with an emphasis on applying Erlang to tough, real world problems. Why do companies like Heroku and Basho turn to Erlang when they need to build scalable, fault-tolerant applications? What is unique about Erlang’s approach to concurrency? Come hear Erlang experts including Joe Armstrong, inventor of Erlang, Fred Herbert, author of Learn You Some Erlang For Great Good, and our very own Reid Draper! Learn how to take advantage of this remarkable programming language at this exciting one day event in the heart of Chicago!
Please note that you'll need to register for this conference. The price is $99 up to Sept 1 and $119 after that. When you register, be sure to use the promotion code riakftw for a 15% discount!
