Cassandra NYC 2011

The first East Coast Apache Cassandra conference was held earlier this week in NYC. It was presented by the NYC Cassandra User Group, NoSQL NYC, Big Data NYC and DataStax.

This event was well attended by many NYC technology companies and was of particular interest to me (photo below right) as the adtivity by appssavvy platform has been built entirely using Cassandra, so no doubt we being big fans are focusing on enterprise use cases as well as the latest Cassandra developments.

We use Cassandra extensively in adtivity to drive the activity ad delivery engine, event and engagement tracking, advanced reporting and analytics, and plan to use it for most of our Big Data needs including search.

The event was time well-spent and I left with fresh understandings of different use cases from advertising industry for real-time decision making on serving ads, to data modeling/storage using the NoSQL approaches encouraged by Cassandra.

Looking forward to the next Cassandra event and getting involved further in the NYC Cassandra User Group to help solve important big data processing problems in the future.
