Last week at the Cassandra Summit in San Francisco we announced the 2014-2015 Datastax Cassandra MVP roster. The individuals who made it on the roster go above and beyond to share their knowledge and expertise to help the Cassandra community, simply put they are the BEST. They educate others and assist the community by speaking at meetups, conferences, answering questions on StackOverflow, flagging Jira tickets, etc.

This year we are very excited to be welcoming some new faces as well as seeing some old friends on the list. As apart of this year’s program, MVPs will get exclusive swag, promoted as a thought leader within the community and get notified of various speaking opportunities (webinars, conferences, etc), participate in an MVP day and more!

During the Cassandra Summit I was able to weed through the hundreds of people and met a lot of the MVPs. It was great meeting (almost) everyone in person and putting a face to the name!


For a complete list of the MVPs, you can go here. Congratulations to all the 2014-2015 MVPs and a big thank you for all the work you do within the community. The Cassandra community wouldn’t be where it is without members like you.
