Greetings Team Riak,
For your perusing this weekend we’ve got a few blog posts to distract you
from CNN’s round-the-clock Matthew coverage along with the presumably
informative mailing list recap. Stay dry out there...
Are you working on something Riak related? Sharing is caring ;) Let me know
what you’re working on and I’ll get your talk, project or blog post in the
next Riak Recap.
Craig Vitter writes in opensource.com, “Riak TS for time series analysis
at scale” , describing his upcoming talk at All Things Open .
Sean Kelly guest blogs on basho.com about pitfalls and misconceptions to

by step instruction on how to get up and running in a number of
circumstances . For those of you who have expressed interest in Riak on
Docker, I encourage you to start with this post.

go wrong when you’re all deployed and in production and how they reigned it
