Introduction to Coding with Riak: Rapid Prototyping to Scaling (New York)

March 18, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

Event Info

[Update! We had to move this to 3/18 to help out our hosts. Please make sure you have it on your calendar for Wednesday!]

Hi Riakators!

Code + Good Food + Beer = Happiness (RSVP so we have the right amount of each)

Welcome back to the Boston Riak group. I’m excited to focus our energy on a particularly interesting portion of developing distributed systems:

• Where do NoSQL technologies fit into my system architecture?

• What’s different about coding with Riak vs relational databases?

• How does it fit into trends like Big Data & IoT from a design perspective?

This event focuses on getting familiar with coding and we have me (Twitter|GitHub) walking you through some starting points: 

• Where does Riak fit into the NoSQL world? 

• What are the strengths of Riak? 

• How do I get started using it?

• Is it good for rapid prototyping?

• How well does it grow into production?

Come by our awesome hosts at with your laptops to follow along or just join to learn a bit more about how your peers are designing distributed systems to scale databases from dev to prod. 

If you have any questions beforehand, you can always ping me on Twitter.
