Building Social Apps for iPhone Backed w/Cassandra, CQL, & Storm

For this meetup, the Los Angeles Big Data Users Group has welcomed us to join them in learning about building social apps for the iPhone backed with Cassandra presented by Dan Gould, founder of Tappy.

What You'll Learn At This Meetup: 

Dan Gould will explain the basics of system architecture and CQL schema design using the example of a new social app that is launching soon.  The system was designed using Cassandra, CQL, Storm, and Python from Day 1.  They will look at examples from previous systems where we've run in to scaling problems, how we overcame them, and why they chose Cassandra over other datastores.  They will also discuss how to model data and use CQL from a programmer's point of view.

This talk is ideal for someone who has read about and understands the basics of Cassandra but would like to understand to to deploy it in the real world.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
