In this unit, yhou will be learning about the collections data types. Collections allow you to store multiple values in each cell, while still keeping the values in dividuality.

There is some other neat CQL functionality that you should be familar with before you get down to creating your data model. This includes collection data types, UDTs, counters, UDFs and UDAs.

DSE Version: 6.0

In this unit, we will be covering denormalization, and how to denormalize for an Apache Cassandra data model.

DSE Version: 6.0

The other half of the primary key (besides partition keys) is called clustering columns. You combine the two to make a stellar data model. Learn about clustering columns in this unit. 

DSE Version: 6.0
April 23, 2018

We will be talking about partitioning and storage structure in this unit, both very important topics for Apache Cassandra data modeling.

DSE Version: 6.0
April 23, 2018

In this unit, you will be learning about the fundamentals of an Apache Cassandra table. There is a lot of terminology you need to learn here, which is especially important for data modeling. But we will break it down and guide you through it.

DSE Version: 6.0
April 23, 2018

In this unit, you will learn just enough Cassandra Query Language, or CQL, to be dangerous. You will need this to create physical data models in Apache Cassandra.

DSE Version: 6.0
April 23, 2018

To learn about Apache Cassandra data modeling, we will be using a movie domain for a sample application called KillrVideo. This unit will introduce you to the KillrVideo application.

DSE Version: 6.0
April 23, 2018

If you've done relational data modeling before, you will come to find that modeling for Apache Cassandra has some distinct differences. In this unit, you will learn how relational datamodeling concepts compare to those used when data modeling for Apache Cassandra.

DSE Version: 6.0
April 23, 2018

This unit is an overview of what the basic data modeling process looks like, regardless of what database you are using. When you get into the course, we will dive deeper into the specifics of data modeling for Apache Cassandra. 

Also, this unit walks you through the setup for the environment used by the exercises in this course. Please click on Exercises tab above for setup instructions. All exercises will be shown under this tab throughtout the course (you can optionally download the assets on left sidebar)
