Inaugural Riak London Meetup

Come to the first ever Riak London Meetup hosted by Ian Plosker of Basho Technologies, the makers of Riak. Our initial meetup will feature Basho Technologies' VP of Engineering, Dave Smith.

Tradeoffs in Distributed Systems

Building distributed software systems is always a balancing act. NoSQL has been promoted as a significant alternative to traditional RDBMS, but the truth is it's just an acknowledgment that it can be useful to have additional dimensions of tradeoffs. This talk will examine the types of tradeoffs one can make in a NoSQL system and examine the Riak and Riak CS projects as concrete examples.

    Very good talks but I would have liked some sort of code shown to demonstrate the types of things riak is capable of. For example I'm very interested in the idea of using riak for a session store but would like to see an engineer integrate it into something like Express for node.js.

    Very friendly people and good introduction to this software discussing use cases, scenarios, trade offs, etc.

    Excellent, informative, friendly event. Perhaps it's churlish of me to complain about the lack of choice of beer brands and virtually no choice in pizza toppings.
