Welcome to DataStax Community!

What is DataStax Community?

DataStax Community is a platform that enables you to engage with community peers and DataStax experts. You will be able to connect with the people through their profile and with the content through our forums and articles.  We also highlight our events and Live Coding sessions so you can really connect with the people and the content that is relevant to you.

DataStax Community is a free resource for the Apache Cassandra and DataStax communities.

The content is visible to anyone but you will need to become a member in order to participate.

As a DataStax Community member, you will be able to ask and answer questions, like and comment all the questions and articles/blogs you read.

We want to ensure that everyone who engages with DataStax Community, whether as a viewer or as a contributor, from the public to member, has a positive experience.

All the members of DataStax Community have to adhere to these community guidelines.

As members, remember that everything you post on DataStax Community will be available publicly.  So here are 3 simple guidelines:
