Riptano is very excited to be working with Gemini Mobile in offering this training. 

As I said at the NoSQL afternoon, we underestimated the amount of interest in Apache Cassandra in Japan. We decided to work quickly to get involved in the community. We are doing this as quickly as possible by offering our standard training course (well received by attendees in Europe and America) and translating our documentation to Japanese (thanks @kimtea!). 


I will be the one providing the training course - as a brief background:
- I have been working with Apache Cassandra for over a year now and have worked directly on internals including: secondary indexes, thrift rpc, and the CLI.
- I have been a committer on the Hector java client project since March, shortly after it's inception
- I have been at Riptano since August and have worked closely with Jonathan Ellis and the rest of the team preparing the presentation materials that we use in our trainings.



 This training is fast-paced and very hands-on. You will leave with a very good understanding of Apache Cassandra operations and application development. I am also working on a custom version of the material with ease of translation as a goal. I feel confident that we will deliver a solid product. 


I understand from Motohashi-san that the translation is a point of concern. I can only say that we will try our hardest to make this work and anyone who signs up for this course and feels like they do not get a good value will have their money refunded in full. 


Please let me know if you have specific questions regarding the training. 


Kind Regards,
- Nate 



(Thanks again to Motohashi-san and Ohtani-san for their help and Gemini Mobile for working with us to set this up quickly).
