CQL: Not Just NoSQL, It’s MoSQL

A session at Cassandra SF 2011

Monday 11th July, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (PST)

For years SQL has provided a stable and (nearly) compatible interface to relational databases, regardless of platform or development environment. Contrast this to the NoSQL ecosystem where each project has implemented it’s own query interface, with specialized tool chain, and a unique set of idiosyncrasies.

With Cassandra 0.8, we have the release of the Cassandra Query Language (CQL). CQL functions similarly to SQL and contains most of the SQL core keywords – CREATE, DROP, INSERT, UPDATE, SELECT, USE are all there and function as one would expect.
