This repository provides source code samples and notes for the O'Reilly book Cassandra: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition.

Book Cover

Examples are available for the following chapters:

Schema (CQL), cassandra-stress, and a sample .csv file for bulk import are available under resources.

These examples are not intended to represent a complete application, but are more of the bare minimum code required to access various Cassandra features . As such, the examples are useful for cut and paste into your applications according to the Apache license below. See the Reservation Service repository for a more well rounded example.

Comments, improvements and feedback are welcome.
