COUCHDB DEFINITIVE GUIDE PDF

Three of CouchDB's creators show you how to use this document-oriented database as a standalone application framework or with high-volume, distributed applications. With its simple model for storing, processing, and accessing data, CouchDB is ideal for web applications that handle huge amounts of loosely structured data. That alone would stretch the limits of a relational database, yet CouchDB offers an open source solution that's reliable, scales easily, and responds quickly. CouchDB works with self-contained data that has loose or ad-hoc connections. It's a model that fits many real-world items, such as contacts, invoices, and receipts, but you'll discover that this database can easily handle data of any kind. With this book, you'll learn how to work with CouchDB through its RESTful web interface, and become familiar with key features such as simple document CRUD create, read, update, delete , advanced MapReduce, deployment tuning, and more.

By the time I got to page 31 I went to the O'Reilly site to look at the errata. I just could not believe how difficult it was to understand what this book was saying, thought there must be some serious typos. As it turns out the errata has comments that have gone years without any reply from the authors. So this was my first hint. Then I went back to Amazon to look at the reviews.

I am the idiot. No one likes this book. Too bad it is written so poorly. I'm going to toss it. The real shame is that this is a difficult subject for people who have been working with relational db's all their career.

So you think initially that maybe you just don't get it. But the truth is the book just doesn't explain the examples with any language that would be helpful to someone that does not already understand it. This is the longest review I have ever left, I usually keep it to the point, but this book is really really bad. This book has three authors. Each of them wrote a different section of the book. The first section is really good!

But the second section is terrible! It has writing errors, confusing diagrams, and it jumps between topics in illogical and confusing ways. I literally could not even figure out what some of the paragraphs were trying to say because the sentence grammar was so bad.

Another problem with the second section is that it tries to present CouchDB as a webapp framework, rather than focusing on its database abilities. The webapp stuff is a neat idea, but that's really not what a beginning CouchDB user is interested in. The webapp info only adds extra complexity and confusion, when all I really wanted to learn about was CouchDB as a database.

The third section is better, but it feels really shallow. I wish it went into more detail on the many topics it tries to cover. I'd recommend reading Part 1 of the free online version of this book Skip part 2 -- it's a complete waste of time. I've been a programmer for about 15 years, so I got a lot of the book, but it's far from the best techie book I've ever read.

The book would be better if it were written in a linear fashion walking the reader through a basic overview of CounchDB and then run the reader through building an application that gets more complicated as the reader progresses through the book and CouchDB features. The example application is a full-blown, albeit light-weight, blogging application. It's way to complicated though to help the reader understand CouchDB. And rather than building code with the book, you end up just looking at the CMS code and trying to relate that to the book.

That's frustrating because the Sofa code has changed radically than what's in the book, so most of the stuff in the book makes no sense. There is a lot of good information in the book, but it's not presented in a useful way, particularly for people who might not understand programming at a deep level.

But CouchDB rocks and it's a pretty new technology, so it's evolving much more quickly than a book can keep up with. One person found this helpful. I read a lot of "Definitive Guide" books and this one diminishes them all. It has very less information. Not a single topic is explained as per my expectations. Completely disappointed. Not recommended. In my case, it was because everything in it was pretty much completely new to me, which makes me suspicious that my initial reaction was influenced by a sort of ego defense mechanism or something.

Fortunately for me, I was convinced by a very enthusiastic and forward thinking colleague that we need to build our next system on top of CouchDB, because it's going to fundamentally change the way we are going compute, deliver, and interact with extremely complex and highly heterogeneous biotech data.

I'll be honest The learning curve given zero background in the material is a little steep, but there are plenty of blogs and tweets that complement the text quite nicely.

In my experience, the more I've put into understanding all that Couch has to offer, the more I feel my creativity and obsession for computing seems to be reaching unprecedented levels.

This book is pretty much always an arm's length away. My bookshelf is full of great O'Reilly technical books, and the content and editing of this book does not live up their standard. Very disappointing. This book is very weak and almost reads like a marketing brochure than a definitive guide.

I would stay away from it, even the free version cost quite a bit in wasted time. This is the worst technical guide I've read from O'Reilly. I'd recommend it for developers with a good background in web programming that are looking for a new way of building and scaling applications. Database administrators will also benefit from its coverage of replication and sharding.

The organization and editing are, unfortunately, not so good. Topics seem strangely ordered, cross references are awkward, and chapters alternate between repeating material unnecessarily and assuming knowledge of material that has not yet been covered. I'd guess this comes from merging the work of three authors, but O'Reilly usually does a better job cleaning up the inevitable collisions.

That aside, this is still a good introduction to the subject, and will give you enough background to start exploring CouchDB without getting too lost. Well worth a place on your NoSQL bookshelf. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. This book explores and shows how the db works - giving useful explanations and examples.

It is a bit short on overall system design, but has a small number of very good examples. Couchdb is short of developer interface and functionality to simplify implementation, but the book talks through some of that. Generally; Excellent.

Thank you for your feedback.
