In this article by Will Hacker, the author of the Mobile Prototyping with Axure 7, we will learn about getting our work on the mobile devices. The main reason for creating a prototype is to exercise a design idea to see if it matches the expectations of stakeholders and can be easily used by the people for whom we are designing. If it doesn't, and we fail, that's OK. That's why we make prototypes. Failing fast and learning from that are important parts of iterative design.
In this article we'll look at:
- Publishing prototypes to AxShare

This article has been created by Vijay Parthasarathy, the author of Learning Cassandra for Administrators. The Apache Cassandra database is a linearly scalable and highly available distributed data store which doesn't compromise on performance and runs on commodity hardware. Cassandra's support for replicating across multiple datacenters / multiple discrete environments is the best in the industry. Cassandra provides high throughput with low latency without any single point of failure on commodity hardware.
Cassandra was inspired by the two papers published by Google (BigTable) in 2006 and Amazon (Dynamo) in 2007, after which Cassandra added more features. Cassandra is different from most of the NoSQL solutions in a lot of ways: the core assumption of most of the distributed NoSQL solutions is that Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of the whole system becomes negligible when the failures of individual nodes are independent, thus resulting in a highly reliable system.
