If you’ve been thinking of trying Riak, but hadn’t yet gotten around to downloading and experimenting, there’s one more resource available this morning that might tip you over the edge. Ben Ahlan and I recorded a screencast demonstrating basic setup and usage of Riak. If you can stand watching two guys mumble over a console for 40 minutes, you may find a tip or two to make your experimentation go smoothly.
I had the pleasure of attending the NYC NoSQL Fall ’09 Meetup/Mini-Conference last Monday. Great talks, all around. I thought it was a good mix of use-case analysis and technology introduction.
In addition to enjoying everyone else’s presentations, I also presented Riak. It was a quick 12-minute talk, followed by 2.5 minutes of questions, but the response I got was great. People really dug in and had interesting observations and questions to discuss afterward.
