This meetup will be all about Riak (http://basho.com/riak/), an open source, distributed NoSQL database. Riak is highly available, fault tolerant, scalable and simple to operate. We have two speakers and of course, pizza and drinks for all! As speakers we have someone from Basho, the creators of Riak and the author of a Riak client written in Scala.
For this meetup TomTom generously offered to provide a great location very close to the Central Station in Amsterdam. Pizza and drinks will be provided by the usual suspects.
