Tools and Techniques


You would love to try some Apache Cassandra but that relational brain is still on? You aren’t alone. Let’s take that OLAP data model and get it OLTP. As you will see, static schema, one-to-many, many-to-many still have a place in Cassandra. From the familiar, we'll go into the specific differences in Cassandra and tricks to make your application fast and resilient. Real techniques to translate application patterns into effective models and common pitfalls that can slow you down and send you running back to RDBMS land.
