4 FluentCassandra is a .NET library for accessing Apache Cassandra. It fully impliments all commands that can be issued against the Apache Cassandra interface and supports .NET 4.0 dynamic keyword as well as a LINQ like expressions for querying the database. The goal of this project is to keep the interface in sync with the latest version of Cassandra and make it as easy as possible for .NET developers to start, adopt and program against the Cassandra database.

25 4. Modify your Cassandra config file as you like and don't forget to update the directory locations from a UNIX like path to something on your windows directory (in my example the config file is located at c:\development\cassandra\conf\storage-conf.xml)

45 Building FluentCassandra
46 --------------------
47
48 If you need to build FluentCassandra locally, know that FluentCassandra uses [Albacore][0] - a Ruby-based build system for Windows.
49
50 To build FluentCassandra, [install Ruby][1] onto your machine and then open a new command prompt to your local FluentCassandra directory and execute the following command:
51
52 ````
53 $: rake
54 ````
55
56 And that's it! The build will automatically run for you. You can also execute `rake -T` to see a list of additional commands.
