Last night I gave a presentation on CouchDB at the New York PHP User Group. I talked about the basics of CouchDB, its JSON documents, its RESTful API, writing and querying MapReduce views, using CouchDB from within PHP, and scaling. The talk was broadcast and recorded on Ustream.
A big thanks to New York PHP (especially Hans Zaunere, Daniel Krook, Alan Seiden, and Isaac Foster) for having me as a guest! If you like what you see here then I hope you’ll consider buying my book, Writing and Querying MapReduce Views in CouchDB or my upcoming book, Scaling CouchDB.
Update (2/27/2011): I’ve uploaded the slides from my talk to SlideShare and used the recorded audio to create a slidecast.
