The Apache Cassandra Project develops a highly scalable second-generation distributed database, bringing together Dynamo's fully distributed design and Bigtable's ColumnFamily-based data model. The Pittsburgh Apache Cassandra User Group is a highly awesome meetup group, bringing together cool people distributed across Pittsburgh to talk about our favorite NoSQL implementation, Apache Cassandra.
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.
