For this meetup, we are going to be doing a joint meetup with the DataStax Cassandra Portland Users group.

Archaic database technologies just don't scale under the always on, distributed demands ​of modern IOT, mobile and web applications. We'll start this Intro to Cassandra by discussing how its approach is different and why so many awesome companies have migrated from the cold clutches of the relational world into the warm embrace of peer to peer architecture. After this high-level opening discussion, we'll briefly unpack the following:

  • Cassandra's internal architecture and distribution model
  • Cassandra's Data Model
  • Reads and Writes ​​ You'll go home with enough Cassandra basics to get your feet wet and some resources to get your hands dirty.
