Basho to Speak About Riak at Lambda Jam

Chicago, IL – July 8, 2013 – Throughout the Lambda Jam Conference this week, Basho will be presenting twice about various aspects of Riak, as well as hosting a workshop on Webmachine. Lambda Jam is a conference for functional programmers and features a mix of sessions and workshops. It takes place in Chicago from July 8-10.

John Daily (Technical Evangelist at Basho), will be presenting first on “Distributed Programming with Riak Core and Pipe.” During his talk, he will dive into how Riak Core and Riak Pipe can be used, both within and beyond Basho. His talk begins at 9am on Tuesday, July 9th.

On July 10th at 9:50am, Basho Architect, Steve Vinoski, will be speaking on “Addressing Network Congestion in Riak Clusters.” In this talk, he will discuss an experimental approach to alleviating network congestion effects, such as timeouts and throughput collapse for Riak clusters under extreme load. In addition to exploring network scalability issues, this talk shows how Erlang can seamlessly integrate with non-FP languages.

Finally, Sean Cribbs and Chris Meiklejohn (Software Engineers at Basho) will be hosting a workshop entitled, “Functional Web Applications with Webmachine.” This workshop will provide guidance for understanding and getting started with Webmachine. It will then gradually expose richer HTTP features, while building out an application that is used by browsers and API clients alike. Their workshop begins at 1pm on July 10th.
