DataStax has recently launched a $10,000 scholarship and paid internship program titled “The Next Great Data Developer”!  Students who take advantage of this fantastic opportunity will build an app using the open source NoSQL software Apache Cassandra, create 5 blog postings, 2 videos (any length), and a one page business case.


Six finalists will be selected, flown out to Franciso (all expenses paid) and given the opportunity to present their home-made Apache Cassandra powered application, live at the Bay Area Cassandra Summit on June 11th – 12th.  


Two of these finalists will be chosen as winners and presented their scholarships by the Apache Cassandra project chair, Jonathan Ellis, on stage, at OSCON 2013 in Portland, Oregon.  Out of our two winners, at least one is required to be a female developer to champion women in IT!
