  • Introduction to CouchDB
  • A python ORM for CouchDB
  • Parsing CouchDB documents within python
  • Writing view functions in python
  • Map/reduce on CouchDB from python
  • Lessons learned from managing and distributing a live deployment at scale under high load

Abstract

This is a rough draft

NoSQL

  • CouchDB stores schema free documents

Why CouchDB?

  • Complicated mapping structures handled
  • Revision history
  • Maps nicely to Python objects
  • HTTP protocol

Python ORM

  • couchdb-python
  • Mapping structures
  • demo

View functions

  • write in Erlang, Javascript, Python?
  • demo

Scaling

  • Distributed map/reduce
  • BigCouch
  • Read/write quorum
