Subject RE: Cassandra book/tutorial
Date Mon, 28 Oct 2013 09:51:38 GMT
Hi Erwin,

Few books are coming out these months :

* Octobre : "Mastering Apache Cassandra" http://www.packtpub.com/mastering-apache-cassandra/book

* November : " Cassandra High Performance Cookbook: Second Edition" http://www.packtpub.com/cassandra-high-performance-cookbook/book

* December : "Practical Cassandra: A Developer's Approach" http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Cassandra-Developers-Addison-Wesley-Analytics/dp/032193394X/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1382953729&sr=1-5&keywords=cassandra

I expected them to be more up-to-date than  the oldie "Cassandra: The Definitive Guide" by
Eben Hewitt (Nov 29, 2010)

This being said, there is also quite a bunch of great content online !

Regards,
Dominique

Thanks a lot to all for information.
I think so that all the current Cassandra are pretty old and outdated.

Reading previous version's documentation and related information from that time in the past
(like books) has value!  It helps to understand decisions that were made and changed and some
that are still the same.... like Secondary Indexes which were introduced in 0.7 when http://www.amazon.com/Cassandra-Definitive-Guide-Eben-Hewitt/dp/1449390412
came out back in 2011.
If you are really just getting started then I say go and start here http://www.planetcassandra.org/

With lot of enthusiasm i started reading it. Its out-dated, error prone. I could not even
get Cassandra running from that book. Eventually i could not get start with cassandra.

http://www.planetcassandra.org has a lot of great resources on it.

Eben Hewitt's book is great, as are the other C* books like the High Performance Cookbook
http://www.amazon.com/Cassandra-Performance-Cookbook-Edward-Capriolo/dp/1849515123
I would recommend reading both of those books.  You can also read http://www.datastax.com/dev/blog/thrift-to-cql3
to help understandings.
From there go with CQL http://cassandra.apache.org/doc/cql3/CQL.html

Unfortunately, as tech books tend to be, it's quite a bit out of date, at this point.
