About site

Many years ago I started my journey in the world of NoSql databases and distributed systems and I found there are no enough information and resources to learn such amazing technologies like Cassandra. I decided to share my experience and knowledge with others and created this blog. Initially it was focused on Apache Cassandra, but now there Apache Cassandra is not the only topic here.

Recently I have started new journey with Clickhouse, and now I have something to share with you about this amazing columnar database. Clickhouse is pretty young system, and it has many dark corners and whitespaces in documentation. In my blog I will try to fill small part of these gaps and share my hands-on experience with you. Hope it will be useful for you.

Of course, posts about other technologies and languages are topics for my blog too, when I have something to say from my experience with them.

I hope you will find something useful for you here and please feel free to left comments and ask questions.

Any feedback is welcome!
