What we will cover:
--Core Cassandra--
Want to know about Cassandra from the ground up? This friendly session assumes no prior knowledge and explains the fundamentals in terms we can all understand. Learn how Cassandra works and what kinds of problems you can solve with it by spinning up and exploring your own cluster.

--Hands-On Data Modeling with CQL--
Want to be successful with Cassandra? Your data model is the single biggest factor! Learn how Cassandra data modeling differs from traditional relational data modeling. Know how to create data models that scale effectively as your system grows. Create your own data model on your cluster using CQL.

--Application Development--
A lone database isn’t useful. Applications leveraging the data is where value kicks in. In this session, learn how to build applications using DataStax drivers to interface with your database. We also cover best practices to keep your code running smoothly by exploring our reference app KillrVideo.

Reminder - Don’t forget your laptop as this is a hands-on workshop.
