  • Building Applications with Apache Cassandra

    by Nate McCall

    The database industry has been abuzz over the past year about NoSQL databases and their applications in the realm of solutions commonly placed under the ‘big data’ heading.

    This interest has filtered down to software development organizations who have had to scramble to make sense of terminology, concepts and patterns particularly in the areas of distributed computing which were previously limited to academics and a very small number of special case applications.

    Like all of these systems, Apache Cassandra, which has quickly emerged as a best-of-breed solution in this space in the NoSQL/Big Data space, still requires a substantial learning curve to implement correctly.

    This tutorial will walk attendees through the fundamentals of Apache Cassandra, installing a small working cluster either locally or via a cloud provider, and practice configuring and managing this cluster with the tools provided in the open source distribution.

    Attendees will then use this cluster to design a simple Java web application as a way to gain practical, hands on experience in designing applications to take advantage of the massive performance gains and operational efficiency that can be leveraged from a correctly architected Apache Cassandra cluster.

    Attendees should leave the tutorial with hands-on knowledge of building a real, working distributed database.
