Apache Cassandra 1.2 with Jonathan Ellis

This month we will be hosting Jonathan Ellis, project chair for Apache Cassandra and co-founder of DataStax. We have invited him to speak on Cassandra 1.2 — which has just been released.

Apache Cassandra 1.2 includes several significant new features, like Vnodes, Collections, and System Metadata Stores in Key-Spaces.  Read all about the new features of 1.2 here: http://www.datastax.com/docs/1.2/new_features. If you haven't looked at Cassandra in a while, or are just now starting to check it out, this is a great opportunity to find out where it is now, and where it's going.

In addition to the talks there will be, as usual, plenty of opportunity to meet other Cassandra users and enjoy robust discussions around NoSQL. A note for regular members: this meetup is on a Wednesday.


Cassandra London would not be what it is without its dedicated supporters. Thanks to Forward (http://forwardtechnology.co.uk/) for supplying the venue and drinks free of charge! Big thanks to DataStax who will be helping out with the costs and supplying some free stuff. DataStax are one of the largest supporters of the Cassandra project and offer comprehensive support as well as their own distribution of Cassandra, Hadoop and Solr (DataStax Enterprise).

Finally, if you're interested in speaking at Cassandra London, please get in touch! The most interesting talks are always those where real usersexplain their use case.
