Apache Cassandra Training

I am now taking RSVPs for my first training course for Apache Cassandra, Operator Excellence. This course is aimed at folks who already have some experience using Apache Cassandra, who are familiar with its fundamentals. If you’re looking to gain a more complete understanding of the database and to be successful in the most challenging environments, this course is for you.

This course will cover a wide range of topics based on my experience running Cassandra in production for the last 10 years. I’ve worked on the biggest deployments in the world including Apple and Netflix, as well as my experience helping teams while at The Last Pickle, and as an independent consultant.

This is an 8-week course running 90 minutes a week, starting April 1. Space is limited to 20 students.


  • Week 1: Join the ring - Orientation
  • Week 2: Tools and Process To Solve Any Problem
  • Week 3: Data Modeling For Massive Scale
  • Week 4: Building a Control Plane
