Hey Erwin,

Another option for you to learn Apache Cassandra is via DataStax’s free online training
(apologies for the DS plug here; it is free though and teaches you how to get up-and-running
with open source Apache Cassandra + Java, with more languages to come next year).

It was just announced last week, starts on November 4th, and you can learn more/pre-register
here: http://www.datastax.com/what-we-offer/products-services/training/virtual-training

Hope this helps. Best of luck.
