Ed Anuff to speak at Cassandra SF 2011
Ever since Ed Anuff published his blog post on Indexing in Cassandra this past February, people have been asking us to get him to speak at the upcoming Cassandra SF 2011. I’m happy to report that we asked, and Ed agreed.
The title of Ed’s talk will be Indexing In Cassandra. Here are the details of the talk:
Cassandra provides a wide set of mechanisms for indexing and searching data. Cassandra’s built-in secondary indexes make it easy to get started, but it also provides unique and powerful capabilities for building custom indexes that can be used for sophisticated queries of object and document data. Cassandra 0.8 introduces Composite columns, which are a key building block of custom indexes. Find out which indexing techniques are best suited to your application, and see what’s possible using some of the advanced indexing techniques.
For those of you not familiar with his work, Ed Anuff is a contributor to the Cassandra and Hector projects. He’s the founder of Usergrid, a mobile infrastructure startup leveraging Cassandra to power mobile applications and has over 20 years experience in the technology industry, founding Widgetbox and Epicentric, and holding executive roles at Six Apart and Vignette. An expert on Java and enterprise technologies, he hold several patents and wrote the Java Sourcebook, one of the first books on Java programming.
