An Evening With Riak

RSVP on meetup and register with Skills Matter to attend this event:

We'll have a couple of talks focusing on Riak, a key value distributed database inspired by the publication of the Amazon Dynamo paper. Come along to get a deeper understanding of Riak and how people are using it in large scale production deployments.

We are also teaming up with Skills Matter Progressive NOSQL tutorials to hold a park bench with the expert speakers from the conference before starting our Riak talks.

17:30 - Park Bench with Jim Webber, Ayende Rahien and other experts from the Progressive NOSQL Tutorials + Pizza, beer and chat

18:30 - Quick Break

18:45Ian Plosker from Basho will give an introduction to Riak by covering the core features and use cases of the technology. He will then move on to discuss how to identify whether Riak is a good fit for your project.

19:15 - David Dawson of Mobile Interactive Group. Mobile Interactive Group uses Riak extensively across many of their platforms including their SMS gateway and Facebook/iPhone voting platform. David will give us a high level overview on how they have deployed Riak and some of the problems they faced (including the solutions).

19:45 - Chew over the talks and drift off to the pub

We'll head to the Slaughtered Lamb afterwards.

Big thanks to Basho for supplying the pizza and beer for this event!

    I was disappointed that I had get the timing wrong and had to leave at the start of the second talk. The 'beer & pizza' session was worth the trip on its own since I got to talk to some very interesting people about the work being done on NoSQL - not just RIAK. I will certainly be attending more events of this sort.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
