After the huge success of Cassandra Summit 2013 we’re excited to announce that the DataStax MVP Program for Apache Cassandra is back and accepting applications! This program is designed to recognize key individuals within the community who have gone above and beyond to help the Cassandra community learn about and utilize Cassandra.


The MVP Program will provide selected individuals with the opportunity to have their content highlighted on PlanetCassandra.org, DataStax.com and throughout Planet Cassandra owned social platforms  (Facebook, Twitter & YouTube).  The types of content that will be highlighted includes: articles and whitepapers, speaking with press, analysts and industry thought leaders, presenting both in online webinars and at key NoSQL/Cassandra events, to blog as an official MVP, your face and information on the DataStax/Planet Cassandra MVP wall and enjoy recognition from Cassandra community peers. This recognition will provide MVPs a key differentiator in career development in this exciting and fast-growing market. The MVP designation is awarded on an annual basis and is open to anyone, except current employees of DataStax and any other third party Cassandra-centric companies.
