Patrick McFadin (@patrickmcfadin) Chief Evangelist at DataStax (@Datastax) joins us this week on The Hot Aisle to continue our education on NoSQL, Cassandra, Apache Spark, and so much more. Your hosts Brent Piatti (@brentpiatti) and Brian Carpenter (@intheDC) look to learn a bit about how Cassandra got here (Thanks Facebook!), the inspirations behind Cassandra (like theDynamo Paper), and how businesses are leveraging Cassandra. We learn about ACID vs. BASE – and no, it’s not a chemistry quiz. Patrick gives us a primer on SMACK stack as well Since he’s got a little bit of free time. So, keep your eyes on the road and your ears open because The Hot Aisle is coming back into 2016 with style. You don’t like it? Fine. But NoSQL for you!!!
