We are delighted to announce that Niall Milton, our resident technical guru and know-it-all has been chosen as a DataStax MVP for Apache Cassandra. Or more specifically, part of the newly named ‘Rebel Elite’. He joins the ranks of some twenty-something people across the globe who are recognised annually for their contributions to the Cassandra community.
As well as blogging about Apache Cassandra, Niall also organises the Dublin Cassandra Meetup which is on the tip of celebrating 200 members. He has been liaising with some top class Companies in Dublin who use Cassandra such as Realex, Boxever and Synchronoss to bring knowledge to the masses.
Niall is our principal consultant at DigBigData, providing general systems architecture, infrastructure and big data consultancy to our customers. He is also a certified trainer for Apache Cassandra.
In the coming months DBD hopes to start contributing some of our automation and enabling technologies to the open source community so watch this space.
