Introduction

Veteran software professional curious about new technologies. Over my career I've seen so much data either purged or worse, never captured in the first place because of concerns about storage costs, etc.

What is your experience with Cassandra?

None - I can only bring my curiosity.

What would you like to get out of the Cassandra Toronto Meetup? Are there any specific topics you'd like to see covered?

A general problem with getting hands-on exposure to anything "Big Data" related is the access to a demo infrastructure to connect with and hack around and learn, as opposed to simply viewing online product videos that show screen shots. The other important aspect is access to other people who work with it and can share enthusiasm, things that frustrated them and where they got with all of this.

What is the idea part of town to host meetups?

Seattle is a bit of a challenge! For myself the best option is anywhere along the Yonge Street corridor.
