Couchbase Server 2.0 is an opensource, distributed NoSQL database. It is a document-oriented data store with a key/value API. Couchbase features a map/reduce engine that allows for complex document indexing and querying. This talk will introduce development with Couchbase Server using the .NET Client Library. After a brief overview of server deployment and architecture, a detailed look at the key/value and document APIs will be covered. The discussion will conclude with a demonstration of using the code-first approach to building an ASP.NET MVC application with Couchbase.
