Git database with bitmap index

Data retrieval team at source{d} process lot of data from git repositories. Most of the key components in our workflow like engine, gitbase, mysql-server are implemented in Go. This talk will go through the story how we embedded "pilosa" (distributed bitmap index) in our SQL frontend for git repositories. - Why we decided to use bitmaps as indexes - How we got to the point where we are (we have embedded pilosa's server implementation inside mysql server implementation) - What problems we came across and how we solved them.
