We’re thrilled to announce that Eric Redmond, co-author of Seven Databases in Seven Weeks, has just joined the engineering team here at Basho. We’ve been big fans of Eric’s work for a while, and we couldn’t be happier that he’s decided to come work full-time on getting Riak into the hearts and minds of developers everywhere.

In case you haven’t read it, “Seven Databases” provides an overview of a variety of open source databases available today. In addition to covering Riak, it also touches on Redis, Neo4J, CouchDB, MongoDB, HBase, and PostgreSQL. It’s available on Amazon.com. The latest version was updated as recently as this past May.

Eric goes by coderoshi on both Twitter and GitHub. Join us in welcoming him to the team and look for his commits flying into Basho’s repositories.
