Cassandra is a fantastic distributed database, however it pushes a lot of complexity back to the application developer.
In this talk Christopher will talk about how to test your applications that use Cassandra.
Starting at the unit test level through to the black box acceptance tests. Most of the talk will be around a new framework, Stubbed Cassandra (http://www.scassandra.org/), that has been developed that stubs Cassandra so that all failure scenarios can be deterministically reproduced without having to create a multi node cluster.
