Efficiently storing your domain model in Riak

(http://blog.trifork.com/2013/06/20/efficiently-storing-your-domain-model-in-riak/)

Riak_product_logoDomain modelling and persistence appear to be at odds with each other, no matter which persistence store you use. Over the years practices have been developed for storing a model in a relational database using ORM frameworks like Hibernate, and various design patterns to help mitigate a number of issues. Not all of these translate very well when using one of the NoSQL persistence stores however. In this blog I will describe a situation we recently came across when working with a model we have to store in Riak. I will detail the model, the typical relational solution in Riak and what alternatives you may want to consider to better work with the strengths and weaknesses of Riak.

Greetings from Trifork Amsterdam 
It’s all about finding the perfect match in life. Trifork A/S (a leading Danish software company) has found just that in us, here in the Netherlands. As of November 1st we’ve launched as Trifork Amsterdam. Rest-assured, we’ll still focus on the technology as we know it best, the entire team will remain intact and we’ll continue to do more of what we do best but even better ;-). If you want to know more visit our website.

JFall Winners
jfallFor those of you who visited us at JFall this year, you’ll probably have done our “Get to know us” questionnaire. We’re pleased to say that pretty much everyone got top marks (even if you did get a little help from us every now & then!).

However the lucky winners of the great prizes are as follows:

  • 1st prize ticket for GOTO Amsterdam, June 2013 goes to Erwin de Gier
  • 2nd prize 2 x tickets for NoSQL roadshow Amsterdam, November 2012 goes to Peter Glas & Michel Schudel
  • 3rd prize: Techy books for 15 runners up (will be contacted individually!).

Congrats to winners and thanks again to all the participants.

Don’t worry though for both NLJUG members and our newsletter readers we also offer great group & sponsorship deals for both events. For more details, contact Daphne Keislair on daphne.keislair@trifork.nl or call +31 6 272 94 119 to discuss the possibilities.

Want to know more on NoSQL?

Just so you know, the amazing early bird rate of 200 EUR for the NoSQL roadshow Amsterdam is still open until 16th November. It’s a unique opportunity to gain insights from some renowned speakers around MongoDBRiakHaadoop & Cassandra,Neo4J and much more. At the end of the session you’ll have no questions around the NoSQL space that’s for sure, so sign up here or contact us for more information. If you can not make it to Amsterdam, a week later the roadshow will be in London too.

Meet us at Devoxx

devoxx logoIf you can’t make it, either sign up for our FREE MongoDB Brown Bag session, or if you’re going toDevoxx visit us at stand number 11 (we’re there with 10Gen).
It’s not all just all about coding: tech meeting December  

Of course we are technology geeks but we also look beyond the code too. This month our two sessions will cover:

  1. Web Application Security, an introduction into how to ensure your web application doesn’t make it to the news (for the wrong reasons!) in 2013, providing you with some basic insights and tips & tools on how to secure your website
  2. Agility Beyond Campfire Romance, an interesting and somewhat contraversial matter when it comes to how best to manage development projects.

Sign up now and join us on 6th December. If you can not make it to the tech meetings we will have the presentations available for download on our website after the sessions.

es logoCommitment to the community
In one of our recent blog posts we already mentioned that both Trifork & GOTO are committed to working closely with the community. This month we will host the Elasticsearch meet up covering the cool use of the product in the new website for the Rijksmuseum, its going to be a great session so sign up now. Also, if you need a location for your meetup (even in one of our other Trifork offices) then we’re happy to help if we can just drop us a note with your request.

Blog blog blogging

We’d published a few blogs recently, including:

NoSQL roadshow Amsterdam

NoSQL Roadshow in Amsterdam

October 10th, 2012 by
(http://blog.trifork.com/2012/10/10/nosql-roadshow-in-amsterdam/)

Are you frustrated by growing data requirements and interested in how non-relational databases could help? Curious about where and how NoSQL systems are being deployed? Want to build a “real” Highly Scalable System? Well if you answered yes to any of these questions you’re not the only one who wants to know more. For this very reason we’ve decided to team up with some of the best NoSQL experts and bring to you the NoSQL Roadshow Amsterdam. It’s been a great success in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Zurich & Basel and hence the roadtrip continues in Amsterdam and thereafter in London.

This informative and intensive 1 day session with 10 presentations is designed to give you an overview of the changing landscape around data management highlighted by concepts like “Big Data” and NoSQL databases, that are based on non-traditional, sometimes non-relational, other times very relational data models. The NoSQL Roadshow aims at IT professionals who are interested in faster and cheaper solutions to managing fast growing amounts of data.

After introducing the landscape and the business problems, you will learn how to attack these growing issues and hear first-hand how organisations were able to solve their modern data problems with innovative solutions like Neo4j, Riak, MongoDB, Cassandra, and many more.

NoSQL Roadshow Amsterdam is also a excellent opportunity for CIOs, CTOs, developers and NoSQL ambassadors to meet and discuss their own experiences with NoSQL – across industries and it’s centrally located at the Pakhuis de Zwijger in the centre of the city.

We have limited capacity, so grab your seats today for Thursday 29th November and sign up for the early bird 50% discount rate of only 150 EUR.

For more information visit the website. If you can not make the 29th November a week later on 6th December there is also an opportunity to sign up for the roadshow in London.

We hope to see you there and help you get started with your big data decisions!

  2. Achieve maximum project delivery reliability by striving for top quality & a rock solid delivery process
  3. Explore our key business domains (even more) and gain maximum exposure and experience in these markets.

Watch this space, as we’ll keep you posted on how we are getting on as the year progresses.

GOTO Amsterdam 2012, May 24-25

January 2nd, 2012 by
(http://blog.trifork.com/2012/01/02/goto-amsterdam-2012-may-24-25/)

Yes, GOTO Amsterdam is back! Our first software development conference co-organized with Trifork last year proved a winning success. We had over 225 attendees, 50% of which were developers and 77% of which were based in the Netherlands; as discussed in my past GOTO retrospect, this event was a huge success and very well received….the KPI measured in number of beers consumed in 48 hours rocked well over the 650 mark!

Because of its success, we have decided to go ahead and schedule the next GOTO Amsterdam. Save the dates for this year: May 24th & 25th 2012, with more details about the program to follow in the upcoming weeks.

GOTO Night #1 sign up now

The popular free GOTO nights will be back too, with the first one scheduled for Thursday 26th January hosted by Marktplaats in Amsterdam. This event will include an open space brainstorm session to allow for your input, but also feature a special presentation from Jørn Larsen featuring a case study “Riak on Drugs (and the other way around)”.

Registration is open, so sign up today!
