• Riak and the Zombie Apocalypse! (see below)
• Conflict-free Replicated Data Types in Riak
Since the beginning, Riak has been a plain-Jane key-value store that pretty much didn't care what you stored in it.
That changed for the first time in Riak 1.4, when we introduced a new convergent data type, the counter, exposing operations other than just "set" and "get".
We're going even further for Riak 2.0 by adding more convergent datatypes, a whole new API for accessing them from client applications, and garbage collection to keep them tight and small.
Richard Shaw, Basho Client Services Engineer, will introduce these new features, show howto use them in an application, and share some of the more technical details around how they work.
More on the Zombie Apocalypse:
A deadly virus has broken out, causing zombie-like symptoms in sufferers.
You are joining the Centre for Disease Control to help find a cure. Sadly, the CDC's relational database is struggling to scale, so we're switching to Riak.
In this session you'll get acclimated to Riak, ready to fight the disease in future Riak meet-ups.
