February 9, 2013 / Washington, DCWatch videos from the talks
An Epic One-Day Erlang Conference in Washington, DC
This workshop will provide you with details of how RiakCore works, and how it is used by Basho as the foundation for Riak. You will then break into teams, and use your new found knowledge to hack in true hackathon fashion - with assistance from experts from Basho if needed - to build the best app you can using the RiakCoreTemplate.
Learning cool new tech, and hacking Erlang for fun and fame? What a great way to spend a Saturday morning!
Casey Rosenthal is currently Director of Training at Basho, where he installs and tests Riak clusters, and provides training to clients so that they can do the same. As Chief Software Engineer for Port Forty Nine, Casey worked for NASA, Caltech, and JPL to engineer systems for storing and disseminating the image archives of space telescopes such as Hubble, Spitzer, Chandra, etc. He came in 4th place at the BotPrize 2K competition in Copenhagen for Discordia, a software bot written in jRuby that plays Unreal Tournament like a human based on a new artificial intelligence algorithm. He won a seed grant from the Maine Institute of Technology to commercialize a discrete event simulation framework written in Ruby.
