A while back (April 2011) I wrote an article that I wanted to publish on Sitepoint but I guess they didn't like it because I haven't had a reply back. I was just randomly cleaning up my mail and found it in my sent messages folder.

I've published it on Script and Scroll,under Introduction to NoSQL, while it was written months ago it is still perfectly relevant and could serve as a good starting point for a beginner interested in getting started with Cassandra and the whole NoSQL idea.

I'll be interested in getting any feedback on it so, have a quick read and mail me your thoughts on it :-).
