For your reading enjoyment this weekend we bring you the Basho Academy a
community client library and, as always, the mailing list recap.
As always, don’t be shy, let us know your thoughts. If you’re working on or
speaking about something Riak related and would like a mention. I’ll get
your talk, project or blog post in the next Riak Recap. I have connections.
Basho is pleased to bring you the Basho Academy , a series of self
paced, tutorial style lessons on Riak development and administration. In a
blog post , Justin Pease walks through the motivation for developing the
Basho Academy and what to expect from the Academy going forward.
Luke Bakken released Riak Python Client 2.5.5 . This fixes a long
standing issue with multi-get and multi-put operations where the thread
pool did not shut down cleanly when the interpreter shuts down. Remember
to "close()" your RiakClient instances to ensure cleanup .
