Earlier this month, we gathered all our developers from around the world in Herzliya, Israel, beside the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. We spent an entire week sharing our latest work with our peers, learning from each other in intensive sessions, and bonding together by forming into teams for a series of fun activities. The days were intensive but very interesting and meaningful to all.

Interested in contributing code to a framework that provides Scylla and other programs with high-throughput I/O and networking? The Scylla team is pleased to announce that the Seastar framework has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code organization. Google Summer of Code with the Seastar project provides students with the opportunity to spend their summer break contributing to an awesome open source project, work under the mentorship of dedicated, brilliant engineers, and in addition receiving a stipend when the project milestones are met.
If you were forced to choose just one thing that would prompt you to move your mission-critical functionality to a new database, what would it be? Better performance? Worries about future scaling on your existing platform? Easier time for your DevOps? What about awesome support from the company itself? At Scylla Summit 2017, mParticle’s Nayden Kolev explained how all of the above factors started the group one year ago on a fruitful collaboration with Scylla in production.
They may not have time machines or lightsabers, but they do have the Higgs-Boson and they’re looking for the most scalable framework with which to study it. At CERN, the problem of the day is scaling out their AliEn global file catalog and their plans may well involve Scylla.
In case you missed the news, on Tuesday we announced our acquisition of Seastar.io database-as-a-service technology from our partner Network Redux.
Programming libraries empower developers to enhance their applications with additional features such as providing connectivity to databases. Not every library is the same but if it is open source, the community can enhance or build new tools with it that can potentially benefit everyone. That’s just what Michal Matczuk of ScyllaDB did with GoCQLX and he will be doing a talk about it at Scylla Summit 2017. Let’s begin the interview to learn more about Michal and his upcoming talk on GoCQLX.
Frank Ober of Intel joined me for a quick interview on what he will be presenting at Scylla Summit 2017.
