How a startup survived the hype years of NoSQL

TALK LEVEL: BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED

In 2012, the NoSQL hype was strong, a digital mailbox service called Kivra is launched and the choice of database was Riak and the language was Erlang.

Today, Kivra is the most used digital mailbox in Sweden.

But what happened in the meantime?

How did the prototype become a reliable system capable of handling changes in terms of time, functionality and load? Join Alexandre on a journey where we learn the challenges and the key design decisions that are part of Kivra's success throughout the years!
