Why is the video_recommendations table missing from the week 2 workshop notebook?

Hi guys,

I am fighting with second lesson`s notebook : Cassandra Developer Workshop #4 - Data Modelling.

Unfortunately, video_recommendations table table does not exist. When I use "DESCRIBE TABLE killrvideo.video_recommendations;" command I get

Could not find schema element to describe

When I want to select all data using prepared by You query in proper keyspace I get: table killrvideo.video_recommendations does not exist.

Can You help me with it?

Best Regards,

This is the second time this got reported to us (see post #6175). For some reason, the first attempt at running the CQL code in this section doesn't work:

We haven't been able to identify the root cause of the problem but we're continuing to investigate.

In the meantime, you can click on the Show code editor button and you can select the CQL statement and run it to create the table for you. Otherwise, you can re-run the whole cell as a workaround to re-create everything for you.

I'll update this post when we've identified a solution. Cheers!
