Putting Rails And CouchDB On The Cloud

Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented NoSQL database that can be queried and indexed in a MapReduce fashion using JavaScript. CouchDB offers an easy way to get introduced to the world of NoSQL.In this session we will learn how to work with CouchDB, how to install it over an Amazon EC2 instance and how to insert and query data on it. We will then create a Ruby on Rails application, host it on the cloud through Heroku and integrate it with our CouchDB.

After this session, the audience will be able to work with CouchDB, understand it’s strengths and work with it over an EC2 instance. The audience will also be able to appreciate the ease of hosting Rails application with Heroku and how quickly one can launch and scale applications over the cloud with the combination of these two technologies.
