Apache Cassandra and Go

  • Oct 29, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Al Tobey (@AlTobey) is an Open Source Mechanic at DataStax. Prior to working at DataStax, Al was a Tech Lead of Compute and Data Services at Ooyala, which has been using Apache Cassandra since version 0.4 and these days uses Go in production. 

Al will be presenting a brief introduction to Go (#golang) and Cassandra, and how they are a great fit for each other. This talk will include code samples and a live demo.

At this Meetup You Will Learn:

• How to build a basic application in Go, that talks to Cassandra

In addition to the talks there will be, as usual, plenty of opportunity to have your Cassandra questions answered by Al and other Cassandra experts, meet local Cassandra users and enjoy discussions around NoSQL. 

Food and beverage will be served. We hope you can join us!
