Overview

This in-depth video training session introduces you to the Cassandra NoSQL database, from drivers to deployment. Through a series of group exercises, you’ll discover several new data modeling patterns in Cassandra that depart from the relational tradition in important ways. Learn how Cassandra delivers on its promise of horizontal scalability and fault tolerance, and how its log-structured storage subsystem helps it achieve impressive write and read performance. You’ll also look at some common administrative scenarios such as adding and removing nodes.

"Too Many forward References" - by Anonymous on 10-MAR-2014

This was helpful especially given so little in the way of good material on Cassandra. However, there were too many forward references which created disjoints in the conversation flow.  And the use of undefined terms and concepts to explain current topics was a missed opportunity for clarity. This could have been better.

While aimed at architects, this class is easily understood by general developers. It is very clearly presented and covers the important aspects of Cassandra. I got a lot out of it.

Excellent and thorough introduction to Cassandra from all angles, though it did feel odd to have Jeff Winger from Community explaining Cassandra to me.
