Christopher will give a brief introduction to Apache Cassandra, how to interact with it from Java and how its architecture is build around being tolerant to faults. Then he'll talk about how developers' mindset needs to change when dealing with a distributed datastore, topics include: CAP theorem and cross datacenter latency.
People should leave with a good understanding of Cassandra and how using a distributed database is very different from a traditional relational database.
- Deployments for building distributed applications
- Brief intro to Apache Cassandra & Interacting it with it from Java
- Cassandra deployments that cross Datacenters
- Examples will be on github
