About this Event

Are you a developer tired of being let down by a database? Need scale and just can’t get it? Old solutions are just that, OLD! This online introductory workshop is perfect for those looking to migrate to, or build cloud-native applications with NoSQL technology and embrace the future of data driven applications.

We will help you understand the basics of building applications with Apache Cassandra. Using DataStax Astra, our Cassandra as a Service, you will get up and running as fast as possible.

Leave our 2 hour Intro to Cassandra session with a free-tier database spinning in the cloud along with an understanding of data modeling principles so you can be the NoSQL super hero. Get the job you want and have a better future.

“Genuinely one of the best workshops I have ever attended. In fact, DataStax has excellent presenters”
