Subject Re: Ball is rolling on High Performance Cassandra Cookbook second edition
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2012 15:48:48 GMT
Hello all,

Work has begun on the second edition!  Keep hitting me up with ideas.
In particular I am looking for someone who has done work with
flume+Cassandra and pig+Cassandra. Both of these things topics will be
covered to some extent in the second edition, but these are two
instances in which I could use some help as I do not have extensive
experience with these two combinations.

Contact me if you have any other ideas as well.

Edward
