I'll present our Cassandra setup at Finn together with datamodels for our usecases.

Pizza and beer!

    A good case study with a good explanation of the evolution that led to current solution.

    Maybe I would choose a different solution myself on that particular problem domain (maybe event stores with stream processing), but I understand that the infrastructure and knowledge were partly already in place, and that there might be many more factors backing the choice than have been covered in these talks.

    Just out of curiosity, did you ever consider something like Greg Young's event store for the "event counting and statistics" use case? It's pretty fast even in single node configuration and comes with support for writing projections in Java Script.

      Oh absolutely, it sounds like you've created a very nice setup and having the option to run map reduce jobs on the data to get new insight is pretty cool.

      Just remember something about looking into higher abstractions for writing map reduce jobs and came to think of the event store with its Java Script based view projections (although I now realize that it was not available when you started the Cassandra project). http://geteventstore....­

    Thanks a lot for pizza, beer and nice presentations! It's always really interesting and educational to see how other developers approach and solve problems.

    Hi guys!
    Great to see that so many of you have possiblity to come on Thursday.
    Here is a plan for the meeting:

    We start at 18.00 with pizza and beer as promised. Those will be sponsored by our American friends from Datastax, although it's not gonna be Pizza Hut and Budweiser, but some decent Norwegian alternative.
    Mr. Mick Semb Wever has volunteered to do a gentle introduction to Cassandra preparing you for a brain-torturing session given by me about our main C* usecase at Finn: Event Counting and Statistics.

    I'm thinking to cover our other five usecases of Cassandra in subsequent meetups maybe combined with some hands-on workshops.

    When you arrive at the entrance door at Grensen 5, please call "Finn.no" and I'll lock up for you, then take elevator to 3rd floor. Or just call me and I'll come and meet you:[masked]

    See you
