Christopher Meiklejohn is Giving the Following Talks
Implementing a Distributed Process Registry on Riak Core

Riak PG is a named process group registry built on Riak Core, a toolkit for building robust, distributed highly-available applications. Riak PG provides a highly-available ""eventually consistent"" view of process groups, leveraging conflict-free replicated data types to guarantee deterministic convergence of the process list. During this talk, we will discuss the design, implementation and unique challenges in implementing Riak PG.

Talk objectives: To provide an introduction to building Riak Core applications using convergent and commutative replicated data types

Target audience: Erlang developers interested in learning about building distributed systems
