AddThis and BigDataDC are excited to host a talk on distributed transactions and data partitioning schemes given by Ben Collins, a core developer at FoundationDB (@FoundationDB).
AddThis is growing and has several engineering positions open. Please contact Matt Abrams ([masked]) if you are interested in learning more about the openings. http://www.addthis.com/careers
We’ll introduce you to FoundationDB’s distributed key-value store -- a high performance, scalable, fully ACID database. We’ll describe some of the uses of this database for transaction processing workloads and how FoundationDB works under failure situations. After this intro we’ll dive deep into the highly sophisticated data partitioning that happens under the covers to keep data accessible and consistent. No sales pitch here -- this will from the perspective of an engineer who wrote some of the code.
6:30-7:00: meet, greet, & eat
7:00-7:15: welcome, announcements, & introductions
7:15-8:15: FoundationDB: A Look into the Internals of a Consistent and Scalable Database

Ben Collins was the first employee and core developer at FoundationDB. He has written parts of the whole FoundationDB stack -- from networking code to language bindings and things between. Before joining FoundationDB he wrote remote sensing analytics software for government customers at MITRE.
