Community

The Basho Community is an incredible collection of developers and we welcome you into it. You can connect with your fellow members on IRC, the riak-user list or in-person at meetups and elsewhere.

YOU'RE WELCOME HERE

Divider

Our Community is an eclectic group of engineers, architects, academics and enthusiasts who care about solving the hardest problems of distributed systems with open source software. Riak, written in Erlang, tackles the continuing complexity of persisting unstructured data with an architecture uniquely designed to scale.

You can freely share questions, answers and feedback. For more on how we communicate as a collective, read our Code of Conduct.

 

 

NEW OPEN SOURCE

Our community makes incredible applications that leverage the scalable and reliable performance of Riak KV or S2 as a basis of their software. They then open source their work, giving back to us all. Here are some trending contributions from household names. If you know of more, share them with us at community@basho.com
