Cassandra Training Overview

Accelebrate's Introduction to Cassandra 3 for Developers training course provides an in-depth introduction to using Cassandra and with a focus on the practical aspects of working with C*. Students learn the internal architecture and CQL (Cassandra Query Language), as well as the Java API for writing Cassandra clients.

This course includes coverage of Cassandra 3.x, but is also suitable for users of Cassandra 2.

Location and Pricing

Most Accelebrate courses are delivered as private, customized, on-site training at our clients' locations worldwide for groups of 3 or more attendees and are custom tailored to their specific needs. Please visit our client list to see organizations for whom we have delivered private in-house training. These courses can also be delivered as live, private online classes for groups that are geographically dispersed or wish to save on the instructor's or students' travel expenses. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for private training at your site or online, please contact us.

Cassandra Training Objectives

All students will:

  • Understand the needs that C* addresses
  • Be familiar with the operation and structure of C*
  • Be able to install and set up a C* database
  • Use the C* tools, including cqlsh, nodetool, and ccm (Cassandra Cluster Manager)
  • Be familiar with the C* architecture, and how a C* cluster is structured
  • Understand how data is distributed and replicated in a C* cluster
  • Understand core C* data modeling concepts, and use them to create well-structured data models
  • Use data replication and eventual consistency intelligently
  • Understand and use CQL to create tables and query for data
  • Know and use the CQL data types (numerical, textual, uuid, etc.)
  • Understand the various kinds of primary keys available (simple, compound, and composite primary keys)
  • Use more advanced capabilities like collections, counters, secondary indexes, CAS (Compare and Set), static columns, and batches
  • Be familiar with the Java client API
  • Use the Java client API to write client programs that work with C*
  • Build and use dynamic queries with QueryBuilder
  • Understand and use asynchronous queries with the Java API
