Apache Cassandra is a second-generation distributed database originally open-sourced by Facebook. Its write-optimized shared-nothing architecture results in excellent performance and scalability.
This tutorial will cover application design with Cassandra through a series of exercises with Twissandra, a simple Twitter clone written in Python and Django.
Most analytics systems rely on large offline computations, which means results come in hours or days behind. Twitter is all about realtime, but with over 160 million users producing over 90 million tweets per day, we need realtime analytics that scaled horizontally. This talk discusses the development of that infrastructure, as well as the products we are beginning to build on top of it.
