While the biggest event of October is Basho’s distributed systems conference, RICON West, we will still be traveling the world to attend many other events this month. Here’s a look at where you can find us during the weeks leading up to RICON.

For a full list of where we’ll be for the rest of the year, check out the Events Page. And don’t forget to get tickets to our nearly sold-out developers conference, RICON West.
The first three days of Erlang Factory are primarily workshops, and Daniel Reverri will be teaching a 3 day class on Building Distributed Clusters with Riak. All attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of exactly why Riak is the best distributed database you will ever run in production.>
The actual conference spans Thursday – Friday, and the talk lineup for this year’s event is exceptional. The Basho team will be well-represented. Put these talks on your calendar if you’re attending:
We’re really excited about all the success surrounding Riak in 2011 and we’re continuously building on that momentum as we move deeper into 2012. The number of Riak users and community members are growing exponentially so we decided to throw a party to celebrate. We’re calling it Basho Bash West 2012, and it’s co-sponsored by our friends at Joyent, Yammer and Voxer.
Come join us on Thursday, March 29th, at 6:30PM. We are renting out Roe, and you won’t be allowed to pay for anything. You’ll also be leaving with some limited edition Riak swag that will make you the envy of all your friends. Various members of the Basho team will be in attendance, along with hundreds of developers, executives, and technology enthusiasts from the Bay Area. Miss this at your peril.
