Subject Upcoming Bay area Cassandra events
Date Fri, 15 Apr 2011 21:57:00 GMT
FYI, there's a couple Cassandra events coming up in April and May in
the Bay area:

Wednesday, April 27, 1pm-6pm: Free Cassandra training by DataStax,
hosted by Ooyala! *Space is limited*; you can sign up at
http://www.datastax.com/freetraining.

Wednesday, April 27, 6pm-8pm (yes, the evening of the training day):
DataStax and Ooyala will be hosting a meet n' greet with pizza, beer,
and Cassandra. The event begins with a happy hour from 6PM to 7PM.
Following the happy hour, Ooyala staff will show how they're using
Cassandra to power their analytics. (Some background material at [1].)
 DataStax engineers will also be there to share details about
Brisk[2], the new open source Hadoop distribution that uses Cassandra
for its core services.

Monday, May 9, 2011, 6:45pm: The San Francisco Geo Meetup will feature
a presentation by Mike Malone of SimpleGeo. Mike will explain how and
why the company built its own data indexing scheme using Apache
Cassandra; some background is at [3]. This is a great opportunity to
to see the type of problems that arise when working with
multidimensional spatial data.
