From David’s notes on Jonathan Ellis’ Cassandra by example presentation at Devoxx:
When designing a relational schema we tend to think of objects and relationships. With Cassandra we need to think of objects and the queries we want to run against them. For each type of query you will need a column family (something like a table).
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
