  • Workshop: Cassandra Data Modeling Methodology, with samples!

    If you’re a developer that wants to succeed with Apache Cassandra™, understanding the art of Data Modeling is the single biggest factor to help you get there!

    Join us for this BRAND NEW session to learn how Cassandra's data modeling differs from traditional data modeling. You’ll leave knowing how to create data models that scale effectively as your system grows - meaning your users get the experience they deserve!

    Session Details:

    Learn how Apache Cassandra™ stores and retrieves data

    Get hands-on experience with Cassandra Query Language (CQL) on your own cluster

    Understand the difference between Structured Query Language (SQL) and CQL

    Learn how to model your data to your queries

    Create keyspaces, create tables, load data and perform queries

    Learn about denormalization

    Put all this into practice and work through an example application data model, called CassandraLand

  • WORKSHOP: Consume APIs with Cassandra + Stargate

    Online event

    Calling all fullstack developers! Looking to build applications on top of Apache Cassandra™? Join us for this cloud-native Cassandra workshop where we explore how to implement and consumer APIs with Cassandra.
    In this workshop, you're going to create a serverless Astra instance, giving you a Cassandra backend with a generous allotment of traffic and data - no credit card required. Even better, that Astra instance gives you free API access to your database, using REST, GraphQL or a JSON-based Document API.

    We'll give a quick overview of Cassandra, Astra and Stargate, then we'll get going - creating an instance, storing your credentials, exploring the various APIs, and then we'll dive into using our Node.js library to create a simple application.

  • Workshop: Apache Cassandra™ meets Kubernetes!

    Online event

    Apache Cassandra™ meets Kubernetes!

    Apache Cassandra™ is used in cloud-native applications that require resilience and scalability - and lots of it! With multiple nodes replicating data all the time, understanding the health of these systems requires advanced knowledge and tooling. Users could spend a lot of time investigating and exploring solutions to ensure operational stability of their C* clusters. But wait, deploying a scalable, elastic and self-healing data plane in Kubernetes should be easy...shouldn't it?

    Thanks to a great community collaboration called K8ssandra (https://k8ssandra.io/) it has become exactly that - easy. K8ssandra is a production-ready platform for running Apache Cassandra™ on Kubernetes. K8ssandra looks to provide these solutions from the start in a simple easy to deploy package - this includes metrics, data anti-entropy services, and backup tooling.

    --
    Join the DataStax Developers as we introduce you to how Cassandra’s architecture and logical fault domains are complimented by Kubernetes - you’ll take a typical containerized application and deploy it with a fully automated data service backed by Apache Cassandra™. Come and see how you can move fast with confidence and very few trade-offs. Don’t miss it!

  • Workshop: Game Development! 🎮

    Online event

    We’re very excited to announce this workshop - Join us as we show you how to make a working, serverless party game called Battlestax!

    In this 2 hour hands-on workshop you will learn how to build a global scale hit party game with React, Netlify and Apache Cassandra™ and even get to deploy it publicly. Sounds cool, right?

    We will take you through the tech stack and give you an understanding of the tools we are going to use - React for the Frontend, Redux for state management, Stargate & Astra for the backend, and of course Netlify for deployment.

    We will then fully deploy your party game, so get ready for your first viral app!
