Riak is an open source, scalable, NoSQL database being used by
organizations like Mozilla, Comcast, and MochiMedia to back production
web applications. Riak scales up and down predictably and easily,
features both Erlang and JavaScript Map/Reduce for advanced querying,
and is made to simplify the lives of both developers and ops
professionals everywhere.
In this talk, Andy Gross (twitter.com/argv0), Basho's Principal
Architect and veteran Python hacker, will give an overview of what
Riak is all about and then take you through the awesomeness one can
expect when working with the Riak and Python.
