Chirper implements a simple twitter clone that, unlike twitter :P, uses Cassandra as its only database. It would’ve been probably cooler to code Chirper it in Ruby or in Python but, unfortunately, this is already done. Chirper’s front-end is written in C# / […]

In this post we will write a sample account management system for Asp.NET MVC applications using Cassandra as a back-end and HectorSharp as Cassandra’s .NET client.
A few days ago, I set up a Cassandra node on my machine. Time to write some code now! In this post, we’ll get started with HectorSharp, a .NET client for Cassandra.
Cassandra is a structured store. It has a rich data model that goes beyond a simple key-value model. This is a good thing as some of the complexity can be pushed to Cassandra, leading to simpler and more efficient applications. This post walks through the different data model elements.
I was surprised how easy it is to set up and run the Apache key-value store Cassandra on Windows. There is no self-contained Windows-based installer, but I got it running from the extracted archive quite easily. All I wanted to do is to get it up and running quickly and do some basic testing.
