I am glad this document helped you.

I like to point to this 'thrift-to-cql' document, since it was really
useful to me when I found it, even if I had to read it at least 3 times
entirely and still need to refer to some piece of it sometimes because of
the complexity of what is explained in it.

@Sylvain, you did a real good job with this blog post. Thanks a lot, be
sure I will continue sharing it.
