There are not so many developers who joined the Cassandra Community in the very beginning and then never quit. Jake is one of them: he works with the Cassandra community as a PMC Member and leads a team at DataStax Enterprise for almost a dozen years already. Of course, he attended Datastax Accelerate conference and we didn't miss a chance to ask him a few questions about the past and future of Cassandra & DSE!
