Course Description

Apache Cassandra like so many other NoSQL tools – is an open-source distributed database system. Apache Cassandra has an extremely scalable and fault-tolerant data infrastructure. Cassandra solves both real-time and analytical big data problems, from write-intensive workloads, to sub-millisecond caching layer reads, to analytical workloads involving petabytes of data using MapReduce.

Apache Cassandra employs to present a scalable, high-available, fault-tolerant database solution for big data processing across multiple servers in organizations. It is yet another Java-based distributed NoSQL DB to handle critical deployments across servers. Cassandra has managed to acquire a good position on the list of NoSQL database market.

What You Learn

Cassandra course makes a record to maintain database management system. Cassandra database is the perfect choice when you need scalability and high availability without compromising performance. Hence, our training teaches you all the necessary aspects of Cassandra including:

  • + Cassandra Data Model
  • + Cassandra Environment
  • + Expiring column and Time to Live (TTL)
  • + Configuring, Reading and Writing Data in Cassandra
  • + Integrating Cassandra with Hadoop
  • + Understanding Cassandra Architecture
  • + Creating Sample Application in Cassandra


The hands on experience is a necessity because you learn when you do. Courses in learning sphere are so designed to spend at least half of the class-time working hands on with the technologies in real time.


We will provide you with a PDF copy of the course materials. You will need a computer to connect to the WebEx session, and to connect to the cloud-based VM.

Yes! Over 85% of our students are full-time employees who use their free time to master new skills that they’re passionate about. The CASSANDRA was built with flexibility in mind. Explore lessons and projects at your convenience, a complete course takes about 25 hours to complete.

No, this program is open to enrolments for any individuals who plan to take the course online.

It always helps to have a sounding board and cheerleader. Learning Spear’s mentors are working professionals and experts in their fields.
Each class works with several great mentors who will:
Help you set goals for the course and make sure you’re on-track to meet them; Meet with you in one-on-one meetings to go over your work and answer any questions you have about the CASSANDRA.

This course will provide you with technical skills in machine learning, algorithms, and data modelling which will allow you to make accurate predictions about your data. You will be creating your models using Python so you will gain a good grasp of this programming language.

After filling us in on some basic information, we’ll connect you with someone who will discuss the program with you, and get to know a little more about you.

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Learned about web development from experienced web developers.
  • Prepared yourself with the foundational knowledge you need to begin a career of continuous learning.

You don’t need to be an experienced developer but need to have basic understanding of the concepts to be in this class. You can go through the pre-requisites provided for each individual course.

Our lessons are broken up into micro-lectures, which teach you content in short spurts so that you can immediately break out into groups and practice applying what you’ve learned. We’ve modelled the course’s activities so that you’ll be able to have constant conversations with your fellow classmates, instructors, and TAs throughout the course.

You will need to have your own computer (a Mac is strongly recommended) and an external monitor (ideally 28” or bigger). You’ll also need access to high speed internet (wired ethernet connection is strongly recommended) and a dedicated, quiet workspace where you feel comfortable working, preferably in a private room away from zany roommates, prying family members, Kramer-like friends popping in, etc.
