Andy Gross of Basho: The Free Lunch is Over, Again

AGENDA

7:00 pm: meet, greet & eat

7:30 pm: main presentation

Followed by a healthy Q&A


TOPIC

Andy will discuss the resurgence in interest in both theoretical and applied distributed systems, explore new areas of promising research, and provide practical advice for dealing with systems in our new distributed world.

SPEAKER

Andy Gross is Chief Architect at Basho Technologies, the company behind Riak and Riak CS. Prior to Basho, Andy held senior distributed systems engineering positions at Mochi Media, Apple, and Akamai Technologies.

PARKING AND DIRECTIONS

We're in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.

We don't recommend parking in our building, as it is quite expensive. The best place for attendees to park is at the Westfield Century City Mall.  Please note that they no longer offer free parking for the first 3 hours.  Parking rates are as follows:

0 to 3 hours: $1.00 per hour 
3 to 5 hours: $1.00 every 15 minutes 
5 hours or more: $24.00 
Daily maximum: $24.00
