acts_as_conference 2009: Relaxing with CouchDB
Will believes that CouchDB, and other document databases, are going to continue to grow in popularity in the future, and it’s important that we as developers are familiar with it so we’re able to use it when appropriate. CouchDB is easy to get running and use so there’s no excuse not to have it in your toolbox. The goal of this talk is to get you excited about CouchDB, and help point you in the right direction. CouchDB and Rails will briefly discuss the background of CouchDB, its features, how it differs from what developers are used to, when to use it, and when not to use it. Will will also show a demo app along with code to help get you started.
