The kind folks at the PHP Usergroup Frankfurt invited me to talk about CouchDB. We meet on November 8th between 19:30 and 20:00 at the Brotfabrik in Frankfurt. If you are in the area and like to hear about CouchDB, feel free to join us.
I will be presenting CouchDB’s core concepts, its recent improvements and the programming interface to give you an overview. Building on that, I will explain how to architect CouchDB applications and show best practices for writing them not forgetting how to do all that from PHP.
In case you forgot:
CouchDB is designed for highly concurrent, distributed and fault tolerant systems. The core principles for scaling database applications are the foundation of CouchDB’s feature set. It supports on- and offline replication, data partitioning, a REST interface that uses JSON for data transportation (Web 2.0 anyone?), a fault tolerant runtime environment built on Erlang/OTP and a sophisticated view engine for fast data access and reporting.
