I will be working with a team of very talented people to make their current curriculum accessible to students, teachers and developers. It’s a huge undertaking and in the frist two weeks I’ve already learned tons of stuff!
So what is DataStax? Directly from their website:
DataStax powered by Apache Cassandra™ delivers a database platform purpose-built for the performance and availability demands of IOT, Web, and Mobile applications. While relational databases fail under modern and dynamic workloads, high-volume data and new business requirements, Cassandra’s modern architecture makes it massively scalable, always available and easy to deploy. DataStax delivers a production version of Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise (DSE), and the ecosystem to make the vision of Cassandra a reality.
This position combines my love for design, teaching and developing, and I couldn’t be happier!
Woo! Go DataStax!
