Course Description:

Taught by a team which includes 2 Stanford alumni, ex-Googlers, and 2 ex-Flipkart Lead Analysts, this Apache Cassandra tutorial teaches basic concepts and their real-time application. The Cassandra distributed database systems are a one stop solution to many data problems. Cassandra allows setting up clusters with many nodes, and uses partitioning and replication method to ensure that data is available at all points in time. The columnar storing capabilities of Cassandra enable parsing of unstructured data.

Course Objectives

What's included in this course:

  • The Cassandra Cluster Manager (CCM) to set up and manage your cluster
  • The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) to create keyspaces, column families, perform CRUD operations on column families and other administrative tasks
  • Designing primary keys and secondary indexes, partitioning and clustering keys
  • Restrictions on queries based on primary and secondary key design

Prerequisites and Target Audience:

To take this course, knowledge of SQL basics and traditional relational databases is a must. You also need to have a basic understanding of Java in order to use the Cassandra Java library. The course is designed for engineers and analysts who understand traditional relational databases and want to move to big data storage systems. If you are generally interested in learning Cassandra, then this course is also for you.
