If you attended RICON West, we’d love to hear your feedback! Please fill out the survey here.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the sold-out RICON West a huge success! RICON has come a long way in just one year and we are excited to see how it grows and evolves in the future.

RICON West featured over 25 speakers from academia and industry, including speakers from Basho, Google, Microsoft Research, Netflix, Salesforce, Seagate, The Weather Company, and Twitter. Over two days, they discussed the theory, practice, and importance of running distributed systems in production as well as some predictions on what’s in store for the future. Over the next few weeks, we will be posting slides and videos from all of the talks on both ricon.io and the blog.

RICON West would not be possible without our amazing sponsors. Thanks to Seagate, Engine Yard, Yammer, Google, SoftLayer, Tower3, Github, and Cloud Foundry for making RICON West a reality.

In case you missed it, we also received some great press. Here’s a quick recap:

What’s next for RICON? With three conferences already under our belt, we are excited to get to work on RICON Europe (our first international conference!) and continue RICON East. Keep an eye on Ricon.io and our blog for more details.

RICON West was also paired with a one-day Riak training. We plan on making these a more regular occurrence all over the country.

Have any feedback about RICON West or the training? We’d love to hear from you! Always feel free to reach out via the Riak Users mailing list, IRC, or contact us.
