Cassandra for Developers

Training Summary
Modern, large-scale applications involve dealing with Big Data, which is often larger than what traditional databases (RDBMS) can handle. The Cassandra (C*) is a massively scalable NoSQL database that provides high availability and fault tolerance. This hands-on course will introduce Cassandra, concepts, data modeling, and CQL (Cassandra Query Language). The focus is practical aspects of working with C* effectively. We will also cover “anti-patterns” and best practices, that will lead to optimal C* implementations in high-performance production systems.
  • Comfortable with Java programming language
  • Comfortable in Linux environment (navigating command line, running commands)
