Subject Re: NewBie Question ~ Book for Cassandra
Date Mon, 13 Jun 2016 15:50:19 GMT
Hi Matt,

I suggested the resources keeping in mind the ease with which one can
learn. My idea was not to disrespect Apache or community in any form, it
was just to facilitate learning of a Newbie.
While having a good wiki would be amazing and I believe we all agree on
this Thread that current Documentation has a lot of scope for improvement.
And I'm completely willing to contribute in whatever way possible to the
docs and getting it reviewed.

Best Regards,
Bhuvan
