In this talk, Chris will go over how to use GoCQL to connect and execute queries against Apache Cassandra & ScyllaDB. Whilst doing so, he will explain best practices and some things to watch out for and will go over what the driver is doing behind the scenes when it is executing queries. Unlike traditional database drivers, GoCQL does more than just converting the query into wire format and sending it to a server. For example, it maintains a full view of the cluster to enable it to send queries to the node which owns the data and dynamically discover nodes joining and leaving the cluster.
