San Francisco Riak Meetup Message Board › Recap of September Riak Meetup
San Francisco, CA
First, thanks to everyone who came out to the meetup this past Thursday.
For those of you who couldn't make it, here is a brief summary of what happened:
In addition to the beer, pizza and great discussions, there were three presentations.
1) The first was from Basho Hacker Dan Reverri (@reverri). He gave a brief overview of Riak using a slide deck put together a few months ago by Basho's very own @kevsmith. Those slides are here ---> http://www.slideshare...
2) Rick Olson (@technoweenie) from GitHub gave a presentation entitled, "Git vs Riak: Battle Royale" that clocked in at just under 30 minutes. This was a great talk complete with code examples and some truly exceptional animated gifs. You can check out his slides here ---> http://git-vs-riak-sf...
3) Andy Gross (@argv0) spoke last with a 30 minute talk about using Riak and RabbitMQ to pump data into SQLite using Post-Commit Hooks. Andy did some live coding during this preso, and the corresponding code can be found here ---> http://bitbucket.org/.... Also, if you're not familiar with Post-Commit Hooks in Riak, you can read more about them on the Riak wiki here ---> http://wiki.basho.com...
Thanks again to everyone who came. Hope to see you next month.
