Meet Lucas in California

General 8 Comments

Lucas (@moonbeamlabs), ArangoDB core developer, rubyist, inventor of Foxx, open source contributor, podcaster etc. – he is currently staying in Mountain View. Yesterday he spoke at the SF JavaScript Meetup at Mozilla and did an introduction to ArangoDB Foxx. Tomorrow he will give a lightening talk about Guacamole at the San Francisco Ruby on Rails Group.

And yes, you can have Lucas at your user group/meetup as well. He is not only speaking on Foxx and ArangoDB, but also on Guacamole, an ORM for Rails, and also on “NoSQL and Domain Driven Design”. You can easily contact Lucas via twitter or send an e-mail to hackers at

  • It was nice to meet you at Reno Collective for the Reno Developers meeting Lucas. I’m checking out ArangoDB for my project. I’m currently using CouchDB with Rails and Javascript.

      Hey Phil :) It was nice to meet you, too! I really like the meetup :) Glad to hear that you liked ArangoDB and that you want to try it out! The Rails gem I talked about briefly can be found [here]( If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email (lucas at this domain 😉 )

    It could be my honor to meet you as I am using arangoDB in my project.
    But as I am off-shore (sitting in a different origin), please do help me in some minor problems i am facing. Thank you

      Great to hear that you are using ARangoDB. Could you post your issue either at stackoverflow, the ArangoDB group or if it’s secret to hackers at We are happy to help you if we can! :-)

        The main thing I need is “Nodes and its implementation” (whole infra-structure) on how the Huge (Monster) databases are handled.
        Please provide me some good material because there is a lot of things for me in ArangoDB which i still want to learn. Thank you.

          Are you saying you plan an application with a HUGE database in a sharded environment and need some information how this is implemented in ArangoDB?
