Introduction to NOSQl and Apache Cassandra.


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 :-).

Cassandra London Meet up and my introduction to CQL talk


I was given the opportunity to do a talk on the up coming CQL feature in Cassandra at the recent meet up.
While it wasn’t highly comprehensive I thought it went well, it was a very gentle intro to CQL which basically
goes over the V1.0.0 syntax and usage… I post the full CQL V1 specification previously.

I recorded and uploaded my presentation after getting a few e-mails regarding the skills matter site below.
You can watch the video here or on their website, if you get a “bandwidth exceeded” or a long page load and the player doesn’t load then you can always watch it on here or over at vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/25815106
