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.
