Using Python with a Distributed Key-Value Store

Most applications need to persist data. This talk will present an approach to persisting data directly from Python without going through SQL or an ORM.

FoundationDB is a distributed key-value store that exposes an interface resembling a Python dictionary on steroids. All interactions with the key-value store take place through transactions with full ACID guarantees.

We'll show how this interface makes it easy to form queries using standard Python language features like generators, itertools, and comprehensions.

Stephen Pimentel is an engineer at FoundationDB in Vienna, VA, where he uses Python with distributed database technology. He writes code, tutorials, and online courses on data modeling in concurrent environments. 

He holds an M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Johns Hopkins. 

You can find him @StephenPiment.
