Benjamin Young introduces CouchDB, it’s schema-less data store, REST API, HTTP-based replication, plugins such as R-tree and GeoCouch, ways to scale it out and then scaling down with mobile solutions.
Benjamin Young has been working his way through technologies, gradually moving from ASP to Apache Cocoon to PHP to Apache CouchDB. His search for a “tangible” data store with a user friendly API has landed him at Couchbase where he works on User Experience. Prior to joining Couchbase, he was principle at BigBlueHat where he developed BlueInk, a PHP/MySQL CMS which he is now porting to CouchDB.
