A flexible API is key to database accessibility and developer friendliness today. Apache Cassandra was lacking in that department, and DataStax is trying to address this with the release of a new API layer called Stargate. 

A discussion with Ed Anuff, formerly of Apogee and Google Cloud, and currently DataStax Chief Product Officer, on the rationale behind Stargate, its architecture and operation, how it compares to GraphQL, and a roadmap for the future.

Orchestrate all the Things podcast: Connecting the Dots with George Anadiotis

I've got tech, data, and media, and i'm not afraid to use them.

My name is George Anadiotis, and i am a writer, a planner and a doer. I am an Onalytica Top 100 Influencer in Big Data and Cloud, a Knowledge Graph expert, and a P2P Foundation and ZDNet contributor, among other things.

Linked Data Orchestration is my brand. This podcast is where i share my work, as well as conversations with people who bring interesting news and views to the table.

Some might call this futurism; let's just say it's connecting the dots.

Coming from a technology background, i've had the chance to learn to play many instruments on the way to becoming a one man band and an orchestrator.

Before starting a career as an analyst and journalist, i served Fortune 500, startups and NGOs as a consultant, built and managed projects, products and teams of all sizes and shapes, and got involved in award-winning research. I still try to do that stuff as much as possible.
