 Chris Anderson is co-founder of, a Portland-based web
 startup which provides Web analytics for the music industry. He
 specializes in CouchDB based web search and large scale CouchDB
 deployment, both for and as an independent consultant.

 Chris will give an introduction to CouchDB, demonstrate some
 example Javascript code for building a blog (and show how
 replication works by letting everyone on the local net copy the
 application to their local install of CouchDB), and give a quick
 tour of the internals for anyone interested in contributing to
 the project.

 Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free
 document-oriented database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON
 API.  Among other features, it provides robust, incremental
 replication with bi-directional conflict detection and
 resolution, and is queryable and indexable using a table-oriented
 view engine with JavaScript acting as the default view definition

 CouchDB is written in Erlang, but can be easily accessed from any
 environment that provides means to make HTTP requests. There are
 a multitude of third-party client libraries that make this even
 easier for a variety of programming languages and environments.
