Okay, I got to admit. My latest crush is CouchDB.
I found lot of people referring to CouchDB when they were talking about node.js which made to find out more about CouchDB. I read a couple of articles and then came to know that O’Reilly was having a webcast (in fact two), in which Chris Anderson, one of the core committers of CouchDB explains about it. I thought of posting the videos here, so that even you could get hooked up to CouchDB
Introduction to Apache CouchDB
This is part one of the webcast. In this webcast, Chris gives a technical overview. He also describes some of CouchDB’s existing users. This webcast also had a question and answer session where Chris answered user’s questions.
Writing jQuery CouchApps
This is part two of the webcast. In this webcast, Chris shows how to hack JQuery CouchApps, which is a p2p web applications that can be deployed anywhere there’s a couch DB.
CouchDB to the edge (JSConf)
This is a talk which Chris Anderson and Jan Lehnardt gave in JSConf 2009 titled “CouchDB to the edge”. They give a nice introduction to CouchDB and also explain about how to write offline web apps that can synchronize the data once they are online.
You can view the video in blip.tv. I have embedded it below for easy viewing.
What’s new in CouchDB 0.11 and 1.0
This is an upcoming webcast (again by O’Reilly) which will happen on June 22, 2010.
In this webcast, Jan Lehnardt will be talking about the new features that will be coming up in the latest version of CouchDB like Views, Replication, Authentication, Virtual Hosts and the Rewriter etc.
