Last year, Basho held a widely-acclaimed conference, RICON2012, where leading technologists gave insightful talks and shared ideas about Basho’s distributed database Riak and, more broadly, the distributed systems space.

The conference will once again host developers, engineers, architects, and scientists talking about Riak as well as key emerging research areas and approaches to solving the challenges faced by the industry today. Learn how some of the smartest people in the world are solving some of the hardest problems in the world.

Early bird ticket sales have begun and talk proposals are welcomed at Please note that the deadline for CFPs is March 15th.

Watch the official RICON blog for speaker announcements.
