Node.js is hot, and Riak is gaining steam. Attend our webinar to find out how you can use them together!
Firstly, thanks to everyone who attended yesterday’s MapReducing Big Data With Luwak Webinar. Here’s the recorded screencast of the webinar along with several other MapReduce and Luwak resources.
Basho Senior Engineer Bryan Fink has been doing some exceptional work with MapReduce and Luwak, Riak’s large-object storage interface. Recently, he wrote up two extensive blog posts on the specifics of Luwak and the powerful tool it makes when combined with Riak’s MapReduce engine.

A short while ago I made it known on the Riak Mailing list that the Basho Dev team was working on getting “more resources out the door to help the community better use Riak.” Today we are pleased to announce that Riak Function Contrib, one of these resources, is now live and awaiting your usage and code contributions.
