Time: Thursday 10:50 - 11:35 / Location: Pendulum

Solr is a well-established search technology in the JVM software space, providing scalable and highly-reliable search indexing for many of the world's largest internet sites. With Riak, our open-source, distributed, fault-tolerant database we're building direct support into Riak to allow you to perform document-based searching at scale.

Workshop: Riak Training

Time: Thursday 14:30 - 18:05 / Location: Tourbillion

Riak is the scalable, highly available, ops-friendly key value database that's in use at GitHub, Rovio and BestBuy.

In this session you'll learn how to work with Riak as a developer, with topics including:

  • Modelling your data in the schema-free, key-value world.
  • Taking the development environment for a spin on your laptop.
  • Add data to your Riak cluster using the REST interface.
  • Build a simple Ruby application that store and retrieves data with Riak.

All you need to attend is your laptop, the Ruby runtimes and a sense of fun!
