QCon SF 2008 – Technology Of Interest

November 26, 2008 | by Omar

Part of the purpose of attending QCon was to get in synch with the tech community in regards to technology they have experimented with and have found use for. The following is a list of technology/frameworks/etc of interest that I took away from the conference:

  • CouchDB – Document oriented database
  • Memcached – Distributed Hashmap
  • MemcacheDB – A database built as on Memcached and BerkleyDB
  • Drizzle – Lightweight SQL Database for the cloud/web
  • GearMan – Distributed processing framework
  • MogileFS – Distributed file system

I intend to spend some time investigating each of these pieces of technology in the coming months with the hope of making use of them when and where applicable.

    Interestingly, four of the above mentioned projects were spawned out of Danga Interactive (now a part of Six Apart) who were responsible for LiveJournal. Memcached is used extensively as a simple, scalable, multinode caching mechanism by many online systems. All of them are Perl and were originally born out of necessity and simplicity.
