Are you a developer tired of being let down by a database? Need scale and just can’t get it? Old solutions are just that, OLD! This online introductory workshop is perfect for those looking to migrate to, or build cloud-native applications with NoSQL technology and embrace the future of data driven applications.

We will help you understand the basics of building applications with Apache Cassandra™. Using DataStax Astra, our Cassandra as a Service, you will get up and running as fast as possible.

Leave our 2 hour Intro to Cassandra session with a free-tier database spinning in the cloud along with an understanding of data modeling principles so you can be the NoSQL super hero.


Session Details:

  • Fundamental NoSQL concepts with Apache Cassandra™
  • Why Cassandra and what it can do
  • Spinning up a database in the cloud (you will be doing the spinning)
  • Data modeling concepts in NoSQL Apache Cassandra™ to make cloud-native application development a breeze
  • Where to go next to continue your learning
  • As always we will be running a couple of quizzes and that means a chance to win some Cassandra swag!
