Join us November 5th at 6 PM for Chris Anderson's introduction to the CouchDB framework. Chris is a Portland-based entrepreneur at Grabb.it and the co-author of an upcoming O'Reilly book on CouchDB.

Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free document-oriented database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API. Among other features, it provides robust, incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and resolution, and is queryable and indexable using a table-oriented view engine with JavaScript acting as the default view definition language.

CouchDB is written in Erlang, but can be easily accessed from any environment that provides means to make HTTP requests. There are a multitude of third-party client libraries that make this even easier for a variety of programming languages and environments.

This event is free to the public. In order to accommodate the appropriate number of attendees, please rsvp to: [email protected].

The event takes place at OpenSourcery: 711 SE Ankeny (on Ankeny and SE 7th, one block south of Burnside). We encourage biking and public transportation.
