Title: Cassandra Anti-Patterns and common pitfalls
In this talk we are going to have a look at how to effectively utilize Cassandra and how to avoid some common pitfalls and anti-patterns which can arise while developing apps which talk to Cassandra.
For better understanding, first part will be compromised of a quick dive into the Cassandra architecture and in the second part, we are going to have a look at some concrete examples of common anti-patterns and how to avoid them.

Title: Cassandra at Zemanta - did we do anything right?
Zemanta is using Cassandra since version 0.7 for a wide range of applications. From storing articles for Solr index to real time analytics. I'll go over our use cases and explain what we did wrong and what we got right. The focus will be mostly on statistics and counting.
Jure Ham is working at Zemanta since 2011 where he's been focusing on developing real time content recommendation infrastructure. He started the love/hate (but mostly love) relationship with Cassandra in 2012 with version 1.1. Since most of his work is focused around Cassandra counters, he has spent most of his time thinking about how to avoid them.
