This talk is for people unfamiliar with building an application with Cassandra or would like a complete example. We will take a simple video sharing web application and go from design to implementation. One of the first questions asked when starting with Cassandra is: “How will my data look?” By starting from the beginning, you will see how the design process works. We’ll cover topics like data modeling, designing for application needs and considerations for deployment. The language used in this talk will be Java, but all data models will be expressed in CQL 3 DDL and are abstract enough for implementation in any language.

Speaker Bio:

His responsibilities included ensuring product availability and scaling for all higher education web products. He came to Hobsons after they acquired his company, Link-11 Systems, a software services company. While at Link-11 Systems, he built the first widely popular CRM system for universities, Connect. He obtained a BS in Computer Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and holds the distinction of being the only recipient of a medal (as anyone can find out) for hacking while serving in the US Navy.

CodeChix - BayArea

CodeChix is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives (501c3).  It is an organization for local women developers run by local women developers in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment with an emphasis on face-to-face communication. It is the first group of its kind and started in 2009 in San Jose, CA.

The key goals of CodeChix are to educate, promote and mentor women engineers and developers.  We foster continuous learning, provide mentorship/guidance and create a local community of women developers. The original chapter of CodeChix is in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area with additional chapters in Seattle/Redmond. The CodeChix slogan is “May the code be with you…”.

CodeChix organizes Hacking Sessions, Technical Talks and Technical Workshops. Past events include Wikipedia’s Operations Infrastructure, Algorithms and Directed Acyclic Graphs, Mobile/Graphic Design for Engineers Workshop, Toy Robotics: My little Pleo, OpenShift Workshop, Android Installfest & App Building 101, Hacking Raspberry Pi and Javascript Plugins Workshop.
