Riak Adoption - What can we do better?

Hi Mark,

The developers I work with would really like to see protocol buffers worked into the PHP client library.  The release of the PB enabled C client made them happy as they could use that to upgrade the PHP client.  Who knows how long before they can get to that.  Until then, it is difficult for us to move Riak from back-end tasks to front-end work.  They feel a protocol buffer interface would be more efficient, so it seems like an area for improvement.

Thanks for asking!

At this point Riak has been deployed thousands of times. This is excellent, but as you can imagine we here at Basho feel this is just the tip of the iceberg. We want everyone to be running Riak. The software obviously needs to solve enough problems for people to want to deploy it. However, we need to get the software into developers' hands before this happens.  So the question is:

What can we be doing better?

I'm not talking so much about features in Riak itself. I'm more interested in the other resources, tools, docs, processes, etc., that you think we need to put in place or refine to take the Riak community from 1000s of users to 100,000s of users. By virtue of being on this list, you've all spent some time using or investigating Riak. As such, you're opinions and experiences would be very valuable.

Any comments, ideas, or thoughts you had would be great. On or off-list will work.

Thanks for your time. Long live the vnode!
