This is an intermediate-level course that focuses on Scylla integrations and setup and expands on concepts touched on in previous courses.

Course Description

The Mutant Monitoring System course is a great tool to train new and experienced Scylla users on key concepts such as setup, failover, compactions, multi-datacenters, and how Scylla integrates with third-party applications. The course is suitable for developers that want to learn how to use Scylla within their custom applications in various programming languages. If you are new to Scylla, it’s recommended that you start with the Scylla Essentials course before taking this one.

The Backstory

Mutants have emerged from the shadows and are now wreaking havoc on Earth. Increased levels of malicious mutant behavior pose a threat to national security and to the general public. To better protect citizens and understand more about the mutants, the Government has enacted the Mutant Registration Act. As required by the act, each mutant must wear a small device that reports his/her actions every second. The overall mission is to help the Government keep the Mutants under control by building a Mutant Monitoring System (MMS). Finish this course, and we just may save the Earth!
Get to it!


The course includes lessons on various topics, which are, in many cases, covered more in depth in other courses. In such cases, you’ll find links to the additional material. The course includes three lessons on using the Scylla Java driver, and this is just a taste. You can find more lessons on using drivers in different languages in the Using Scylla Drivers course.
