Erlang Users of Arlington/DC Message Board › May Meetup: Getting Started with Riak by Rusty Klophaus
|A former member||
We have a great speaker for our May meeting on May 17th. Please RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/erlang/events/17550721/
Getting Started with Riak
Basho thinks your database should never lead to downtime or overtime. That's why we built Riak. Riak is part of the "NoSQL" movement of non-relational datastores. It uses the power of Erlang to run across multiple servers and to stay running when faced with high load or hardware failure.
In this talk, I'll introduce the basic concepts behind Riak, demonstrate how to use the Erlang client to build a useful application on Riak, and touch briefly on advanced Riak topics.
