We are thrilled to welcome Christos Kalantzis from Netflix (https://signup.netflix.com/) to come and talk about their use of Cassandra (http://cassandra.apache.org/). Netflix is a company that I personally admire greatly and I personally can't wait to learn more about how they manage their infrastructure. Please join us for what should be an incredibly informative presentation!

This event is a combined meetup with the Colorado Cassandra Users Group (http://www.meetup.com/Colorado-Cassandra-Meetup/). I'm looking forward to meeting more big data professionals.

A big thank you to Brady Gentile from DataStax (http://www.datastax.com/) for helping organize this event!
