[DOTSCALE WORKSHOP] Data Modeling in the New World by DataStax

This workshop is run by DataStax, silver partner of dotScale 2014.

In this half-day session, you’ll learn about Data Modeling in the New World with Apache Cassandra(™). Johnny will give you a quick overview of the Cassandra architecture for new-comers, but will swiftly move into the depths of data modeling with Cassandra, CQL, data modeling framework and case studies. There will be the chance to try the data Modeling exercises yourself.

Schedule

1) Introduction to Cassandra - core concepts, availability, scalability, security - appropriate hardware - use cases for Cassandra 2) CQL and Data Modelling - Detailed overview of CQL - Data Modelling Approaches - Timeseries data example


3) Native driver and protocol - An overview of the native driver and protocol - Tips and examples using the Java Driver


5) Cassandra 1.2, 2.0 and up-coming 2.1 - An overview of the functionality and features in these versions


4) Hands on workshop (optional and time permitting) - Build a very simple Java application connecting to and querying Cassandra


Prerequisites

• You will need a 64-bit laptop with 8GB of available RAM and 20GB of free hard drive space.

• You'll need to install the appropriate VMWare player for your operating system and download the VM and material for the hands on workshop here: http://bit.ly/1sNnrtO.
This is an Ubuntu VM that comes installed with DSE 3.2/Cassandra 1.2 and the Eclipse IDE.
Please ensure the VM starts correctly as it will be required for the hands on workshop.

Host: Johnny Miller, Lead Solution Architect at DataStax

      Last minute thing. Can't lake it. But it seems the vm thing is not that important. .

    Just so you know, the agenda is not quite what was originally posted. This is what I will be covering:

    1) Introduction to Cassandra
    - core concepts, availability, scalability, security
    - appropriate hardware
    - use cases for Cassandra
    2) CQL and Data Modelling
    - Detailed overview of CQL
    - Data Modelling Approaches
    - Timeseries data example
    3) Native driver and protocol
    - An overview of the native driver and protocol
    - Tips and examples using the Java Driver
    5) Cassandra 1.2, 2.0 and up-coming 2.1
    - An overview of the functionality and features in these versions
    4) Hands on workshop (optional and time permitting)
    - Build a very simple Java application connecting to and querying Cassandra

    The VM is for the hands-on workshop at the end. Its a fairly basic exercise and we will only do it if we have enough time. If your OK to pair with someone that should be fine. The vast majority of the session will not be using the VM.

    I'm running Cassandra on bare metal on my – not quite beefy – OS X machine. Will I be fine tomorrow?

    I'm also looking for a pair as I will be little late due to late flight.

  • Gaelle G.

    My laptop is old and does not meet the RAM requirements.
    Is there someone ready to pair with me or should I just unRSVP ?
