Cassandra Launch #70: Basics of Apache Cassandra

In Apache Cassandra Lunch #70: Basics of Apache Cassandra, we discussed the basics of Apache Cassandra, we discussed why we need apache Cassandra, we also looked at some of the features of Cassandra. In the process, we were able to learn the background knowledge about Cassandra, we then went a step forward to set up a standalone Apache Cassandra. With the standalone Cassandra, we used Cassandra Query Language (CQL) to communicate and interact with the Cassandra database. The live recording of Cassandra Lunch, which includes a more in-depth discussion and a demo, is embedded below in case you were not able to attend live.
