This talk is for people unfamiliar with building an application with Cassandra or would like a complete example. We will take a simple video sharing web application and go from design to implementation. One of the first questions asked when starting with Cassandra is: “How will my data look?” By starting from the beginning, you will see how the design process works. We’ll cover topics like data modeling, designing for application needs and considerations for deployment. The language used in this talk will be Java, but all data models will be expressed in CQL 3 DDL and are abstract enough for implementation in any language.
