UPDATED FOR CouchDB 3.0!!!
Apache CouchDB is an exciting NoSQL database that is easy to get up and running with. It stores JSON documents and attachments of any type. You are free to store your data the way you want, and access it the way you want. It features a brilliant web interface which allows you to quickly maintain many aspects of the program and each database.
In this course we will discuss:
The fundamentals of what CouchDB is, and how it differs from traditional databases
The different versions of CouchDB that are available (version 1 thru 3 and Cloudant)
How to install CouchDB on MacOS, Windows and Linux
How to sign up for a hosted CouchDB account
Working in the web interface (Futon and Fauxton)
Working with the REST API
Create and work with Design Documents
Running queries with Mango
Replication among databases and servers
Old versions that still may be in use will still be covered in a legacy section
More content will be added to this course as CouchDB develops, waiting anxiously for version 4.0!
Please note: this course is about Apache CouchDB and NOT Couchbase which is a completely unrelated database

I've been working as an IT professional and a developer for decades. I've been a computer nerd even longer. I've taught at several universities and colleges on a variety of topics including statistical analysis, research methodology and existential psychology. I taught yoga and meditation at night. In my spare time, I've developed apps for desktop and mobile devices.
My goal is to make every course I create as clear and complete as possible. I want to make sure that anything my students are interested in learning will get included. I want to make sure that everyone gets as much as they can use.
I will be available as much as possible, to help, to answer questions and to add more content.
