In this unit, we will be looking at some use cases and creating some data models for them, to exercise our knowledge of Apache Cassandra data modeling techniques.

In this unit, we will be taking a look at some of the anti-patterns you should watch out for when data modeling with DataStax Enterprise.

How do we migrate our existing data model into a new one when using DataStax Enterprise? In this unit, we will explore different way that it can be done, and go through some important points to keep in mind while doing so.

In this unit, you will learn about table/key optimizations. Most likely the majority of the optimizations we can make to our data model involve making changes to our table's schema, particular to the primary key.

In this unit, we will be taking a look at some alternate ways to perform reads in Apache Cassandra or DataStax Enterprise. For example, in some cases using an index may be helpful. Or if certain requirements or queries change, it may be possible...

Using Apache Cassandra at the core of DataStax Enterprise, write operations are designed to be as efficient as possible. But there are some techniques that can be used in terms of data modelling for dealing with specific challenges. We discuss...

Now lets get down to creating table in Apache Cassandra! That's what this unit is all about. This is how we create our physical data model.

Now let's get into the details of creating a logical data model. In this unit, we go through some rules to consider when putting together your logical data model.

April 23, 2018

In this unit, you will learn how to map your conceptual data model to a logical one, also using the access patterns from your application workflow.

We need to figure out how users are going to navigate through our application. We call this the application workflow. This is necessary so we know which queries to perform against our Apache Cassandra database. Learn more about the application...
