Cassandra is an incredibly powerful, scalable and distributed open source database system. Companies with extremely high traffic use it to provide their users with consistent uptime, blazing speed, and a solid framework. However, many developers find Cassandra to be challenging because the configuration can be complex and learning a new query language (CQL) is something they just don't have time to do.

Stargate is an Open Source project which sits on top of Cassandra and provides HTTP interfaces to your data - it provides a REST API, a GraphQL API, and a document-oriented Schemaless API.

You can install it on top of your own Cassandra instance and participate in the community. During this presentation we will demo, detail purpose, capabilities and internals of the tool. We also give a working sample as a docker-ready configuration file.
