May 2010 LRUG Meeting

This meetup was organised by LRUG: London Ruby User Group in May 2010


This is the May 2010 LRUG meeting. Makoto Inoue, who gave a short talk at the recent nosqleu conference about Tokyo Cabinet, will give a slightly retooled (and more ruby-focused) version of that talk for us. Dan Lucraft will talk about ruby profilers, specifically his jruby-prof gem. NOTE: This event starts at 7pm, instead of the usual time of 6:30pm.

Tokyo Cabinet, Tokyo Tyrant and Kyoto Cabinet: the World of Mikio Ware

Tokyo Cabinet is one of the first "Key Value" stores. It was released in 2007, but surprisingly small number of people know what it is really capable of. Makoto Inoue, the maintainer of Tokyo Cabinet Wiki will unveil the core philosophy and exciting features behind these products.
