Abstract Since its inception, the Cassandra Query Language (CQL) has grown and matured, resulting in the 3rd version of the language (CQL3) being finalized in Cassandra 1.2. Compared to the legacy Thrift API, CQL3 aims at providing an API that is higher level and more user friendly but still fully assumes the distributed nature of Cassandra and it's storage engine. This presentation will present CQL3, describing the reasoning and goals behind the language as well as the language itself. CQL's relationship with Thrift will be touched on, along with the CQL binary protocol that has been introduced in Cassandra 1.2. This presentation will wrap up by discussing the future of CQL.
