Event Details

DataStax Advanced Modeling Training for Apache Cassandra

DataStax's modeling and analytics training program gives you the technical background and information you need to build highly reliable applications on top of  Apache Cassandra. This session is appropriate for developers looking to understand design principles involved in modeling against Cassandra.

Requirements and Expectations

This training will include hands-on exercises. Attendees must bring their own laptop, and should pre-install VMWare Player (Fusion on OS X) to run the virtual machine provided by DataStax. Training will run from 9 to 5:00 with a one-hour break for lunch (provided by DataStax) and two shorter breaks in the morning and afternoon for each day of the training.

This two day training course focuses on the data modeling in Apache Cassandra. Many people are drawn to Apache Cassandra for performance, high availability, and tunable consistency. What is not recognized is that there are many design patterns that can be applied to modeling data in Apache Cassandra that can lead to powerful applications that solve some very interesting use cases. This course will cover some of the most common use cases and demonstrate how complex problems can be solved in Apache Cassandra by taking clever advantage of the way Cassandra stores data.
