The Basho team of distributed systems engineers continues to develop new Riak functionality to help companies build innovative applications. A few members of the Basho team recently took a break from their day jobs to share some of the details of their recent work at the Erlang User Conference in Stockholm. In case you missed them, we wanted to share videos of these presentations. (Hint: They aren’t just for people passionate about Erlang)

Presentation Overview

With the new Riak Time Series, you're seeing more traditional tools like native SQL querying being added. This talk will look at meta-programming being used in a gossip-based cluster to build an adaptive Riak that reconfigures itself to handle structured data — and how we use standard SQL to interrogate that data.

The Getting Started with NoSQL Guide will get you hands-on with NoSQL in minutes with no coding needed. Brought to you in partnership with Couchbase.
