"Cassandra as an email storage system" plus "CQL - then and now"

It's great to be ushering in a new year of Cassandra London. Cassandra has come along way since we launched at the end of 2010 - recently judged as one of the 10 most important open source projects of 2011.

We're kicking off 2012 with a great line up of speakers. Rustam Aliyev has been a member of the group since the very beginning and is now ready to share his experiences implementing Cassandra as an email storage system at Elastic Inbox. Courtney Robinson is another regular member who spoke about CQL back when it was bleeding edge. He's now going to give us an update on what's new.

In addition to the talks there will be, as usual, plenty of opportunity to meet other Cassandra users and enjoy robust discussions around NoSQL.

Cassandra London would not be what it is without its dedicated supporters. Thanks to Acunu for their long-term support and sponsorship (they pay for the free beer and pizza). If you're looking for professional Cassandra support I recommend you check out Acunu's training, consultancy and support products. I'd also like to welcome Visual DNA, the leading audience data provider, who are sponsoring this month. Visual DNA are currently hiring engineers (Cassandra experience a bonus!) 

Finally, if you're interested in speaking at Cassandra London, please get in touch! The most interesting talks are always those where real users explain their use case.

    I am quite new in Cassandra, so some stuff was difficult for me to understand. But it was interesting to hear real experience of using cassandra on real projects...

    Great presenters and a detailed tun through of ElasticInbox, very impressive. Good conversations about Cassandra being used in anger.

    Great talk from Rustam on using Cassandra for email metadata, with a cautionary note on Cassandra counters. Courtney Robinson's brief update on CQL managed to highlight some of the unresolved issues, for example that CQL doesn't support supercolumns while we'd just heard from Rustam that they can be really useful. Food for thought. Plus pizza.
