Last week, Basho sponsored O’Reilly OSCON, a conference dedicated to all things open source. In addition to sponsoring, Basho engineer Eric Redmond presented on “Distributed Patterns in Action.”
In his talk, he discusses the data structures and message patterns that are used to craft a distributed system à la Riak. To create a system like Riak is more than asking which programming language to use, or which libraries to include. He explains how a better approach is if you take a collection of well-known patterns and put them together in the right way for the right reasons, you can distribute all sorts of tasks across multiple nodes.
The slides from his talk can be found here.

Portland, OR – July 22, 2013 – Basho is a proud sponsor of O’Reilly OSCON, a conference focused on the entire open source ecosystem. In addition to sponsoring, Basho software engineer, Eric Redmond, will also be speaking at OSCON.
Redmond’s talk, “Distributed Patterns in Action,” will go through a set of distributed data structures and discuss how each works and when should be used. Redmond is a longtime advocate of alternative storage mechanisms (especially the distributed kind) and has co-authored the books, “Seven Databases in Seven Weeks” and “A Little Riak Book.” His talk begins at 11:30am on Thursday, July 25th.
In its fifteenth year, OSCON is known as the primary gathering place for the open source community – bringing together developers, innovators, businesspeople, and investors. It works to bridge partnerships between businesses and the open source community, while also unveiling some of the most groundbreaking open source products and projects. OSCON takes place July 22-26 in Portland, OR.
