We’re cohosting a hackathon with FoundationDB on Friday. For those of you not in the know, FoundationDB is a pretty exciting addition to the NoSQL space. It brings flexible, arbitrary transactionality (including atomic cross-row joins in a distributed system) to NoSQL. My colleague Doug Turnbull got very excited about the technology a few months ago and blogged an introductionto it shortly after it became public.

The extra cool part is that several APIs exist (Java, Python, others) that allow you to access this key-value store and to even connect it to other SQL and NoSQL technologies. For instance, someone has already built a SQLite connector so that your API can think that it’s talking to SQLite, but actually be talking to FoundationDB. (And all SQLite tests pass.) During the hackathon, we hope to get a good start on implementing a connector between Solr and FoundationDB.

So join us and the super smart folks at FoundationDB on Friday at our offices in Charlottesville! We’re excited, and hope you can make it!
