Featured Presentation:

Riak is an open source, scalable, NoSQL database being used by organizations like Mozilla, Comcast, and MochiMedia to back production web applications. Riak scales up and down predictably and easily, features both Erlang and JavaScript Map/Reduce for advanced querying, and is made to simplify the lives of both developers and ops professionals everywhere.

In this talk, Andy Gross ( http://twitter.com/argv0 ), Basho's Principal Architect and veteran Python hacker, will give an overview of what Riak is all about and then take you through the awesomeness one can expect when working with the Riak and Python.
