Building social apps 4 iPhone backed w/Cassandra, CQL, & Storm/Dan Gould-Tappy


Dan Gould will explain the basics of system architecture and CQL schema design using the example of a new social app that is launching soon.  The system was designed using Cassandra, CQL, Storm, and Python from Day 1.  They will look at examples from previous systems where we've run in to scaling problems, how we overcame them, and why they chose Cassandra over other datastores.  They will also discuss how to model data and use CQL from a programmer's point of view.

This talk is ideal for someone who has read about and understands the basics of Cassandra but would like to understand to to deploy it in the real world.


Dan Gould is founder of Tappy, a new mobile app.  Dan previously founded Newroo, a machine learning-based news aggregation system which was acquired by News Corp.  He was VP, Technology at Fox where he helped create and grow the Fox Audience Network into the 4th-largest Ad Network in the world.  Dan was previously a researcher at the Brown Graphics Group and at the National Institutes of Health.  He did early work on brain-computer interfaces at Cyberkinetics, helped found a variety of other companies, and has angel invested in many companies in LA and elsewhere.
