Riak Recap for May 14 - 20
====================

1) Matt Ranney and the team at Voxer released their production Node.js
client for Riak.

* Details and code here on the Basho Blog --->
http://basho.com/blog/technical/2012/05/14/Voxers-NodeJS-Client-Now-Open-Source/

2) David Dawson and Marcus Kern gave a talk in London a few weeks back
called "Real Life Riak at MIG".

* Watch here --->
http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/nosql/mobile-interactive-group-riak

3) Ian Plosker gave a "Introduction to Riak" talk at that same event.

* Watch here ---> http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/nosql/denormalised-riak

4) Tim Douglas and the team at Bump wrote a great blog post on how and why
they made the transition to Riak from MongoDB.

* Read here ---> http://devblog.bu.mp/from-mongodb-to-riak-7138

5) Simon Buckle wrote his second piece on Riak for IBM developerWorks. This
one is about using Riak as a cache.

* Read here --->

6) This is a bit old but I'm including it because it's worthwhile (and I
neglected to recap it when it was first published): Srdjan Pejic wrote a
post called "Riak Search as a Means of Querying" that you should read.

* Blog here --->
http://batasrki.github.com/blog/2012/04/24/riak-search-as-a-means-of-querying/

7) Basho and Riak are going to have a big presence at Strange Loop in a few
months (more to come on that soon)... To start things off, Sean Cribbs'
"Eventually Consistent Data Structures" talk was accepted. (Pay special
attention to this if you care about stricter consistency guarantees on top
of Riak.) Also, go register for Strange Loop.

* Talk details here --->

8) Boundary hacker Dietrich Featherston gave a talk last week on one of
their internal systems called Kobayashi and touches on how it makes use of
Riak. (Also, if you're in/around San Francisco and aren't signed up for the
Boundary Tech Talk Meetup Group, I highly recommend you do so:
http://www.meetup.com/Boundary-Tech-Talks/)

* Slides from his talk here --->

9) Steve Vinoski's "Objects, Anomalies, and Actors: The Next Revolution"
talk from QConSF 2011 is now online.

* Watch here --->

10) Bradley Taylor and his team at Rails Machine are looking for a Web
Operations Engineer. There's a non-trivial chance you'll get to do some
ridiculous things with Riak.

* Details here --->

11) There are a few new pieces of Riak content up on SA.
