This week I attended and presented at CouchConf Boston. I’d like to thank Couchbase for inviting me to speak—it was a great opportunity to meet other CouchDB and Couchbase users. I’ve posted the slides from my Entity Relationships in a Document Database talk to Speaker Deck (and SlideShare, if you prefer):
The presentation covered four patterns for modeling entity relationships in document databases such as CouchDB and Couchbase:
- Embedded Entities
- Related Documents
- List of Keys
- Relationship Documents
See the presentation for more details. This topic is also covered in the MapReduce Views for SQL Users chapter in the second edition of Writing and Querying MapReduce Views in CouchDB.
