To Rahul,


This is your official email (just from me as an individual) requesting your assistance to
help solve the knowledge management problem. I can appreciate the work you put into the Awesome
Cassandra list.  It is difficult to keep everything up to date.  I’ve been there too.


The golden trophy if you want to do the absolute best thing is a full-fledged professional
development initiative for Cassandra.   From an instructional design view, what you do is
create a body of knowledge and exhaustive list of competencies, some call KSA’s: knowledge,
skills and abilities; then you do a gap analysis to find the areas in practice where gaps
exists between the competencies desired and those of practitioners, then generate a mix of
media for difference learning styles in a structured properly sequenced series of easy to
work through steps complete with apperception exercises, and everyone will then have a smooth
path towards mastery.  It’s that easy.


So, yes let’s turn it up a few notches.


Thank you,


Kenneth Brotman

TLDR; If you want to help curate / organize / gather knowledge about Cassandra, send me an
email. I’d love to solve at least the knowledge management problem. 

Complaining itself is not a solution or a step in the right direction. Defining an issue helps
by identifying specifically what the pain is and a decision can be made to resolve or not
resolve it.
