Geoffrey Grosenbach, famous for his PeepCode
screencasts for developers, blessed us with a a new release: “CouchDB & Rails”.
While the title includes “Rails”, Geoffrey spends most of the time on CouchDB and the Rails bits are actually applicable to any other MVC-based web framework in any language (PHP, Python, Perl — doesn’t matter). Even if you are not into these there is a whole lot to learn.
Geoffrey covers all the basics: What CouchDB and why it is so special by being document oriented, how to install and access it, using it from Ruby, document CRUD including attachments, views in theory and practice and finally how to pull it all together for a small yet useful web application.
Go check it out. It is only $9 and a free preview is available.
PS: Geoffrey promised to create more (and more advanced) screencasts if this one is successful. Do me a favour and make sure this one is successful, thanks! :-)
It’s looking good for me. Thanks for the information.
Just bought one. Thanks for doing the great work!
