Information includes:


The course Using Scylla Drivers in Scylla University explains how to use drivers in different languages to interact with a Scylla cluster. The lesson, Coding with Python (link), goes over a sample application that, using the Python driver, interacts with a three-node Scylla cluster. It connects to a Scylla cluster, displays the contents of a table, inserts and deletes data, and shows the contents of the table after each action. Scylla University includes other training material and online courses which will help you become a Scylla NoSQL database expert.

Object Mapper

cqlengine (originally developed by Blake Eggleston and Jon Haddad, with contributions from the community) is now maintained as an integral part of this package. Refer to documentation here.
