Today we are excited to announce at our Cassandra Summit in London the general availability of DataStax DevCenter 1.0!

DevCenter, our new DataStax drivers, and DataStax OpsCenter are designed to give you a simple, productive and familiar environment for developing and administering Apache Cassandra™ and DataStax Enterprise.

DevCenter is a free visual query tool that can be used by both developers and admins for creating and running Cassandra Query Language (CQL) queries and commands against Apache Cassandra and DataStax Enterprise.

Since our pre-production releases a couple of months ago, we’ve added many new core components including a Schema Explorer, an Outline view for CQL scripts, and a smart CQL editor that supports syntax highlighting and advanced code auto-completion.

There’s no better way to introduce DevCenter than a quick 2 minutes video:

DataStax DevCenter runs on Mac, Linux, Windows and is available for download now. The distribution also includes some sample scripts to get started with (check the README for more details).

Thank you for using and supporting Apache Cassandra and DataStax. We would love to hear your questions, comments and ideas about DevCenter. Send us your feedback to devcenter-feedback@datastax.com.
