The Basho team will be attending the Erlang Factory conference in San Francisco this week, as well as hosting the afterparty on Thursday March, 29th. We hope to see you at Basho Bash West 2012!
Thomas Santero is joining Basho as Technical Evangelist. He’s based in Staten Island and will be focusing his time on bringing Riak to developers everywhere along the Eastern seaboard.
Ted Nyman is the lead engineer at Simple, a startup that is changing the way people bank. Ted was kind enough to come out to BashoChats last week in San Francisco to share his views on building scalable, JVM-based services that just work.
Peter Bailis is Graduate Student in the much-heralded Berkeley CS department. He and some colleagues have been working on something called Probabilistically Bounded Staleness for Practical Partial Quorums (PBS). In short, PBS aims to define just how eventual “eventual consistency” is, and their research produced some fascinating findings that should affect how people view and deploy distributed databases like Riak, Cassandra and Voldemort.
Riak Control is Basho’s new OSS, REST-driven, user-interface for their NoSQL database ‘Riak’. You can find more information on setting up RIak Control on the Basho Wiki.
The videos from last month’s San Francisco Riak Meetup are online and ready for consumption. The first features Julio Capote giving a short overview of the work he and Posterous are doing with Riak as a post cache. The second presentation was from Mark Phillips and it was all about Riak Control, the new Admin Tool that will be fully supported in the forthcoming Riak 1.1 release.
