Building Java Applications with Cassandra




Spark and Cassandra




DataStax Global Director Of Training, Tim Berglund


Running a little later than scheduled, we're incredibly pleased to welcome back Tim Berglund to the Dublin Java User Group's September stage at TechMeetup.Space.


Session 1 - Building Java Applications with Cassandra

So you're a JVM developer, and you've got a big problem to solve. You've got way more data than can fit on a single database server, and it's no passive collection of facts to analyze: this is a transactional application that modifies data frequently and with unforgiving latency SLAs. You need Cassandra.


In this talk, we'll look at how Cassandra operates as a distributed database, and what sorts of challenges it presents to the application developer. Even better, we'll see what the code actually looks like to perform ordinary database queries against a database like Cassandra. Come to this session to see what a distributed, non-relational database really looks like.

Are you a Java Developer who wants X-Training to Scala? You Bet!!

We are now interviewing for a new funded multinational making its place in Ireland. Check the 'brief' here now and then call me, Gerry Nolan, on +353 (0)1 209 1919 for full company details.



Session 2 - Spark and Cassandra

Apache Cassandra is a leading open-source distributed database capable of amazing feats of scale, but its data model requires a bit of planning for it to perform well. Of course, the nature of ad-hoc data exploration and analysis requires that we be able to ask questions we hadn't planned on asking-and get an answer fast. Enter Apache Spark.


Spark is a distributed computation framework optimized to work in-memory, and heavily influenced by concepts from functional programming languages. It's exactly what a Cassandra cluster needs to deliver real-time, ad-hoc querying of operational data at scale.


In this talk, we'll explore Spark and see how it works together with Cassandra to deliver a powerful open-source big data analytic solution .
