Rust newbie fasttrack to production experience.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

  • What You Need to Know About ScyllaDB 5.0: Because Avi Kivity will finally unleash Raft!
  • The Future of Consensus in ScyllaDB 5.0 and Beyond: Because Raft will provide the foundation of a radical change in how we perceive Cassandra and ScyllaDB so far. ScyllaDB is finally taking its own way forward.
    Overcoming the Performance Cost of Streaming Transactions: I’m so frustrated not to have tested Redpanda yet!
  • Stream Processing with ScyllaDB — No Message Queue Involved!: ScyllaDB to replace a message queue? That’s a bold move I want to hear about!
  • ScyllaDB Rust Driver: One Driver to Rule Them All: Because I know how cool it is to use!
  • ScyllaDB 5.0 New Features, Part 1 and 2: Because I want it now!!!

Rust!

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

I’m looking forward to Daniel Belenky’s Stream Processing with ScyllaDB — No Message Queue Involved! and Alexys Jacob’s Learning Rust the Hard Way for a Production Kafka + ScyllaDB Pipeline. Both are quite intriguing and it looks like they are going to show two vastly different ways of how ScyllaDB can interact with stream processing.

Because memes deserve high-availability multi-cloud too 😉

Scylla Cloud with Adar Bahar. We have strong opinions about how to make something like this absurdly great, so we’re looking forward to seeing how ScyllaDB does it!

Understand how Interoperability + Scylla-bility enable billion-dollar industry.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

How ScyllaDB Powers This Next Tech Cycle because I want to get inspired on how ScyllaDB can tackle the next generation of data-intensive applications that will enable digitization for all industries at global scale.

Will LaForest, Confluent

Three way ScyllaDB mac with Kafka.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

Learning Rust the Hard Way for a Production Kafka + ScyllaDB Pipeline. It sounds like they have some hard-earned lessons around the adoption of Rust with ScyllaDB and Kafka and I have yet to use Rust so I expect I learn quite a bit

Because we make CDP and privacy understandable.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

Mostly looking forward to the Scylla team talks especially the new features in Scylla 5.0 and Scylla cloud.

We will cover the basics of a CDP. No extra resources are needed as long as you are acquainted with the fundamentals of ScyllaDB (I recommend the Scylla Essentials course on Scylla University for that).

Pascal Desmarets, Hackolade

ScyllaDB success requires data modeling.

What other session are you most looking forward to and why?

To see the amazing scalability of ScyllaDB:

  • How to Migrate a Cassandra Counter Table for 68 Billion Records
  • Operating at Monstrous New Scales: Benchmarking Petabyte Workloads on ScyllaDB
  • What You Need to Know About ScyllaDB 5.0
