I was feeling a little bit crazy the other day and I installed Cassandra on my home computer. Twice. Just because. It wasn’t really a “just because” moment. I installed Cassandra twice so I could get the hang of it in case anyone asked me how they could go ahead and get started. The process was relatively painless, but there are some prerequisites that you need to have installed before you can get started. I thought that it would be good to create this short Cassandra installation tutorial to help you get started.
This video walks through everything you need to do get Cassandra installed and running on your computer. Apart from installing the OS. If you don’t have an OS, I don’t know how you’re reading this, probably witchcraft.
