Damien Katz Relaxing on CouchDB

In this interview, Damien Katz talks about CouchDB, a distributed, fault tolerant, document oriented database developed by Apache Incubator. CouchDB is written in Erlang, and the database is accessed through an HTTP/JSON API. The database view engine is run on JavaScript, but other languages have been used like Ruby and Python.

Damien Katz has worked for Lotus, MySQL, IBM, and is the creator of CouchDB. Damien will be doing this for a very long time to come.
