Getting started with CouchDB, an increasingly popular non-relational database.
Conclusion

CouchDB is an increasingly popular non-relational database, offering a great deal of flexibility in storage and retrieval. This month, I explained how to create databases in CouchDB and do basic storage and retrieval using both the Web-based Futon interface and curl. Next month, I will demonstrate writing JavaScript functions that process and display the data, demonstrating the true power of CouchDB.
