Works from code, too
Connectors and libraries for Cassandra are available for almost any development environment, including Enterprise Windows environments like .NET and C#. Nick Berardi's Fluent Cassandra client is available as an open source NuGet package for .NET developers.
As shown here in Visual Studio 2012, you can grab Fluent Cassandra by entering the "Install-Package FluentCassandra" command in the Package Manager window.
The Install-Package command doesn't just install the bits! The FluentCassandra assembly reference gets added to your .NET project as well, as shown here.
Code is as code does
The code shown here is a slightly modified version of some sample code provided by Nick Berardi. The code opens up an existing column family, adds a row to it, creates two super columns, adds columns and values into the super columns, adds the super columns as property values into the new row, attaches the row and saves all changes.
As you can see, getting the DataStax Community version of Cassandra installed and running is pretty easy. And once DataStax is on your machine, you have a range of browser, command line and developer clients available to create and query Cassandra NoSQL databases.
