Hello my Denormalizeds,
In case you’ve been beaten down by the dog days of summer, fight back by
reading about the Spark Riak Connector and the ever present mailing list
As always, let us know your thoughts: If you’re working on or speaking
about something Riak related and would like a mention, let me know. I’ll
get your talk, project or blog post in the next Riak Recap. I know a guy.
The Spark Riak Connector is actively being enhanced . Try it out and
let us know what you think.
## Community Code and Walkthroughs
Jason Voegele will be giving a talk entitled “Dialyzer: Optimistic Type
Checking for Erlang and Elixir”  at ElixirConf  in Orlando, FL Aug 31
- Sept 2.
Pavel Hardak guest-published an article on the Databricks blog: “The
Quest for Hidden Treasure: An Apache Spark Connector for the Riak NoSQL
database.” In it he reviews the architecture of the Spark Riak Connector
and how to use it from Spark .
Along with the blog post, we also published a Spark/Riak TS tutorial on
the Databricks site. The aforementioned blog details how to get to the
tutorial from within Databricks Community Edition or skip all that and
