Torben Hoffmann
Architect @ Basho

Using riak_core has until recently not been for the faint of heart. Dependency issues due to a somewhat deep dependency graph has made it more painful than it ought to be. In this talk we will look at how to deal with such a dependency problem using xref and Columbo, the dependency detective tool. We will also visit how the changes makes using riak_core in your own application a breeze.
