Come Learn About Cassandra From Our Expert

Calling all “Geeks”… Next week our own database “geek” Stu Hood will be giving a presentation on Cassandra to a Java user group in Austin, TX. Cassandra is a non-relational database system that excels at storing large amounts of data. It’s a structured key-value store, where keys can map to multiple, complex values. It offers linear scalability and eventual consistency. Stu will describe what Cassandra is good at, what it’s not good at, and the differences between it and a traditional relational database management system.

Here are the details if you would like to join Stu:

When: January 26th, 2010 7-9 PM CST

Where: Commons Lil’ Tex Auditorium – 10100 Burnet Road, Austin, TX 78758

(Tell guard that you’re going to an Austin Java Users Group meeting at the Lil’ Tex in the Commons)
