Distributed Databases and Cassandra at PyCon

I'll be leading an open-spaces discussion about distributed database architecture, implementation, and use today at 5:00 PM in the Lambert room. Specifically, we will cover bigtable, dynamo, and cassandra, and how to port a typical relational schema to cassandra's ColumnFamily model.

I wrote a little background information yesterday about why I think Cassandra in particular is compelling.
