In this lesson, you’ll learn how to design data models for Cassandra, including a data modeling process and notation. To apply this knowledge, we’ll design the data model for a sample application. This will help show how all the parts fit together. Along the way, we’ll use a tool to help us manage our CQL (Cassandra Query Language) scripts.
What you’ll learn—and how you can apply it
You will learn common patterns and antipatterns for data modeling in Cassandra. This lesson will cover the concepts around data modeling and will compare a Cassandra data model with an equivalent relational database model. You’ll learn about defining queries and about logical and physical database modeling. You’ll learn how to optimize your model for performance, and finally you’ll learn how to implement your model schema using CQL.
