For this meetup, we are excited to be joined by Russell Spitzer, Software Engineer in Test at Datastax.
What You'll Learn At This Meetup:
Apache Cassandra and Spark when combined can give powerful OLTP and OLAP functionality for your data. We’ll walk through the basics of both of these platforms before diving into applications combining the two. Usually joins, changing a partition key, or importing data can be difficult in Cassandra, but we’ll see how do these and other operations in a set of simple Spark Shell one-liners!
