Distributed system blog posts, podcasts, and presentations are everywhere, but understanding how to actually use various tools, projects, and services? Not so straightforward.

Adron Hall (@adron), Developer Evangelist at DataStax, joins Christina Warren (@film_girl) to break down distributed systems, including what they are (and aren't), then dive into questions to ask as you design distributed data systems and how to weigh pros and cons.

To help you visualize and get started, you'll see his favorite Cassandra* demo -- and how to make systems more intelligent and resilient across clouds and regions.

*Apache Cassandra = NoSQL open source distributed database
