At the Forge - CouchDB
The home page for CouchDB is at the Apache Project (couchdb.apache.org). There, you can not only download the software, but also read documentation, from tutorials to an active wiki. The CouchDB Web site also has links to drivers for the various languages you're likely to use when working with CouchDB.
If you're interested in the JSON format used by CouchDB, you can learn more about it at the main Web site: json.org.
Finally, two good books on CouchDB were released in the past few months. Beginning CouchDB by Joe Lennon and published by Apress is aimed more at beginners, but it has a solid introduction to CouchDB, Futon and how you might use the system. CouchDB: The Definitive Guide by J. Chris Anderson, Jan Lehnardt and Noah Slater, published by O'Reilly, is a bit more advanced and meaty, but it might not be appropriate for beginning users of non-relational databases.
