UpdatePDX monthly meeting

ABOUT THE GROUP: With new databases springing up faster than new food carts this meetup aims to cut through the hype and disseminate knowledge from people who have been using, scaling, and getting-paged-by databases and other systems in production environments.

Meetups will be a presentation on someone's experience with a database or related technology in production preceded by 1 or 2 people giving 5 minute lightning talks on technologies they've just begun using and are excited about.

Hopefully a few months after giving a lightning talk the speaker will return to present on their experience as the main presentation.

If nothing else, come by to have a beer and share war stories with others trying to fight through the hype and keep their systems humming.

Please RSVP on the meetup site and sign up for the mailing list.

Couchbase Meetup
Vintage Plaza, Tuscany A and B Room


In conjunction with JSConf, Couchbase will be in Portland for this one-time meetup!

Our own J. Chris Anderson and Dustin Sallings will be hosting an afternoon event. In this live coding tutorial, they will take you from never having downloaded CouchDB or Couchbase, all the way through to a running jQuery-based real time chat app.

We will also have some lightning talks by some of our community members.

Thanks to JSConf and Update Portland for helping us put this together.
