Cassandra and Priam at Netflix

Hello South Bay DataStax Cassandra Users,

This upcoming April 4th meetup is one that you won't want to miss!

Netflix, a champion in open source and Apache Cassandra, has graciously offered to host our second meetup and they've come prepared with two fantastic presentations:

Jason Brown, the most recently added Apache Cassandra committer and Senior Software Engineer at Netflix Inc., will be presenting an introduction to Priam and how it solves C* deployment problems in Amazon EC2.

Gregg Ulrich, Cassandra DevOps Lead at Netflix Inc., will be guiding an interactive discussion on monitoring and maintaining a C* cluster.

Be sure to come straight from the office as pizza, refreshments and C* Ale will be served, sponsored by Netflix and DataStax.

We hope to see you there!

Note: We are very excited to be having the San Francisco Bay Area Big Data and Scalable Systems group joining us at this event!

    Hey all, Thanks for coming out last night! I've uploaded the slides to my talk on Priam:

    I liked the content. I would love to see Netflix put on a hack-o-thon. Right now the draw is OSS and people that are already doing Cassandra. Netflix could bring in a ground swell of people that like to get their hands dirty with an education based hack-o-thon.

      I agree Brad. It would be very helpful to have more hands-on sessions, or even bootcamps that teach how to use each part together. The only upcoming one I know of is at GlueCon.

    This really sucks. I am in Palo Alto and just finished up work an hour later than I wanted. I am gutted I am not going to be around for this tonight.
    Hope you guys are able to share some thoughts from the meetup + maybe some slides if they are around?
