We hope we could give you a good idea what you can use the winning combination of Riak and Node.js for, by showing you our little syslog-emulating sample application, Riaktant. We made the source code available, so if you feel like running your own syslog replacement, go right ahead and let us know how things go. Of course you can just dig into the code and see how nicely Node.js and Riak play together too.
Thanks to Joyent for providing us with SmartMachines running Riak, and for offering No.de, their great hosting service for Node.js applications, where we deployed our little app with great ease.

We invite you to join us for a free webinar on Tuesday, March 15 at 2:00PM Eastern Time (UTC-4) to talk about Riak with node.js. In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- Getting riak-js, the Riak client for node.js, into your application
- Storing, retrieving, manipulating key-value data
- Issuing MapReduce queries
- Finding data with Riak Search
- Testing your code with the TestServer
We’ll address the above topics in addition to looking at a sample application. The presentation will last 30 to 45 minutes, with time for questions at the end. Fill in the form below if you want to get started building node.js applications on top of Riak!
