He’ll help get you even better acquainted with this paradigm-shifting technology. All in all, you should walk out with some shiny knowledge and a new pal.
Dani Traphagen is a technical enablement developer for DataStax, where she develops and runs their internal training programs. Her passion for teaching began while working in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at the University of California-Berkeley, where she taught scientists technical skills, helped create a Data Science course, and raised awareness about the growing open science community. Dani has since volunteered with or generated training content for a number of organizations including software carpentry, women in technology, rOpenSci, and GitHub. Prior to that, she worked in Cartilage Tissue Engineering at the University of California, San Francisco. This was where her interests for heavy machinery, science, and code first fused. If you don’t catch Dani behind a computer, you’ll often see her in the wild, backpacking, riding her bike, or climbing things. She also makes sure to keep the coffee business afloat where she resides in Portland, Oregon.
Jon Haddad has 15 years experience in both development and operations. For the last ten he’s worked at various startups in southern California. For the last two years he’s been the maintainer of cqlengine, the Python object mapper for Cassandra, now integrated into the native Cassandra driver. He’s now a Technical Evangelist at DataStax, continuing to focus on advancing Cassandra in the Python operations and data science communities.
