Beginning CouchDB

The new world of cloud computing needs data storage. CouchDB is the
scalable, portable, simple database engine that is helping open source
cloud architects put their data stores onto a firm foundation. Beginning CouchDB
provides the tools to begin using this very powerful database engine
without having to pay license fees for the software, or worry about
administrator’s certifications or vast hardware requirements. This book
teaches the fundamentals of one of the most powerful database engines
ever created for the price of a good lunch. After reading this book and
working through the examples, you’ll be able to write your own
applications for CouchDB quickly and easily.
  • In-depth,
    non-intimidating guide to CouchDB and how it differs from similar
    offerings such as SimpleDB and BigTable, and also how it differs from
    traditional relational and object-oriented databases such as Oracle,
    SQL Server, and MySQL.
  • Detailed explanation of how CouchDB
    works, its suitability for use in distributed environments, the role of
    Erlang, and other technical topics in a manner that does not obfuscate
    methods or results. JavaScript is extremely popular as a development
    language for CouchDB. No Erlang is required, but a little bit can’t
    hurt either.
  • A tutorial-oriented approach to teaching
    readers how to use CouchDB, featuring many code examples and listings,
    as well as screenshots where relevant.
