London Erlang User Group: Riak Introduction

You announce that you’re visiting a foreign city, and suddenly your schedule is full of things to do there. 😉

The latest addition to my schedule is the London Erlang User Group. I’ll be giving an introduction to Riak, and also discussing the advantages and disadvantages we’ve experienced by choosing to develop in Erlang/OTP. If you’re interested, go register and then attend the meeting on April 21.

Now if I can just get some time for pints worked into that schedule as well, I’ll be set. I’m very anxious for some bitter/porter/etc. in the land of CAMRA. 🙂

NoSQL EU: Key-value Stores and Riak

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at no:sql(eu). I’ll be covering Key-value stores and Riak. The talk should be a good overview of this [very] broad domain of datastores, as well as a closer look at a few unique features of some specific implementations.

I’ll also be teaching a Riak workshop on the last day of the conference. I plan to cover the design, implementation, and deployment of a simple wiki-like application. It should be a good introduction to simple Riak usage (just storing and fetching data), while also exposing some advanced features (like link-walking, map-reduce, and conflict-resolution).

Looking forward to meeting people there!
