Java and .NET Client Drivers - Cassandra development on fire

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cassandra 1.2 finalizes CQL3 and introduces a new binary protocol for client/server communication. These two components are the foundation of the new line of drivers developed by DataStax. Based on years of experience with Cassandra, these new drivers for Java, .Net and Python come with an asynchronous and lightweight architecture, a clean and simple API, a standardized way to discover nodes and to manage load balancing and fail over. This presentation will give an in depth look at these new drivers which will make your Cassandra-based applications even more robust, efficient and simple to write.
