The Cassandra (C*) database is a massively scalable NoSQL database that provides high availability and fault tolerance, as well as linear scalability when adding new nodes to a cluster. It has many powerful capabilities, such as tunable and eventual consistency, that allow it to meet the needs of modern applications, but also introduce a new paradigm for data modeling that many organizations do not have the expertise to use in the best way.
Introduction to Cassandra is a hands-on course designed to teach attendees the basics of how to create good data models with Cassandra. This technical course has a focus on the practical aspects of working with C*, and introduces essential concepts needed to understand Cassandra, including enough coverage of internal architecture to make good decisions. It is hands-on, with labs that provide experience in core functionality. Students will also explore CQL (Cassandra Query Language), as well as some of the “anti-patterns” that lead to non-optimal C* data models and be ready to work on production systems involving Cassandra.
Attendees should have incoming experience with and knowledge of SQL. Some familiarity with distributed systems is also helpful.
