This is a fantastic video on the features and functionality of the current (2013) generation DB driver. It seems the Java and .NET drivers are the preferred platforms. I’m terribly interested in Java and have found the Datastax driver to be exceptionally reliable in my testing.
Fantastic video on data modeling in Cassandra! I think I like this even more than the last!! It is nice to see such a concentration of skill in a community!
This is part 3 of a series! Although they are independent, if you find it seems to go too fast, or you have to stop and look up things, go back and watch #2, or even all of them in order!
1: The Data Model is Dead! Long Live the Data Model http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=px6U2n74q3g

I love learning by others mistakes! It is so much more efficient than learning by your own mistakes! From configuration to design, this talk was incredibly useful!
Interesting stuff! Using Cassandra for data replication and not using hardware raid for that! He also explains tombstones and their effect on performance! “tracing on;” is my new catchphrase!! 🙂
Speaker: Sylvain Lebresne, Apache Cassandra Committer and Engineer at DataStax
This guy has some fantastic things to say! (forgot to post when I watched it!)
Fantastic walk through explaining the aggregate-oriented design philosophy of Cassandra DB’s.
Fantastic walk through of his process of designing a real work, anonymized example.
