Use Case Review
Group Effort

Unfortunately we had (an awesome) presenter cancel at the last minute due to some unforeseen travel. So, here is what we thought we would do:

Many of the questions around Riak are related to use cases and whether or not Riak is suitable for them. And, I suspect, many of you are attending the Riak meetups to determine this very thing. Here is what we thought would be great. Submit your use case in advance to me and we will cover as many as possible (time permitting).

If you would like to have your use case reviewed, send an email to [address removed] with the subject "Use Case Review" and the following info:

  • Describe what your application does
  • Describe how your data breaks down into logical groups (e.g., Users, Comments, Postings, etc.)
  • Describe how your data relates to itself (e.g., Users write posts and comment on posts)
  • Describe the behavior of the relationship over time (e.g., A user writes posts once a day, comments are added to posts very frequently)

This should be fun. Don't hesitate to email me with any questions.

Other details:

As usual, the refreshments and pizza will be on Basho so please RSVP in advance so we can plan appropriately.

See you all next Thursday.
