September 19, 2013
Strange Loop 2013 is currently taking over St. Louis, MO through September 20th. Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that brings together developers and thinkers to discuss technologies around emerging languages, concurrent and distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Riak is a proud sponsor and many members of our team will be there to discuss Riak CS, our open source cloud storage software.
Garrett Eardley, Software Engineer at Riot Games, will also be presenting on how Riot Games is leveraging Riak for their next generation stats system. His talk, “Tracking Millions of Ganks in Near Real Time,” will discuss why they chose to use Riak (and move from their existing MySQL architecture), how they structure their data model and indexes, and their strategies for working with eventually consistent data. His talk will take place today, September 19th, at 9:50am.
Stop by the Riak table to grab some swag and to learn more about distributed systems.
