This tutorial assumes that you have Visual Studio 2010 installed, along with ASP.NET MVC 4. You may use any edition of Visual Studio or you may use Visual Web Developer. Visual Studio 2012 will also work for this tutorial, but the screenshots included will be from Visual Studio 2012 Professional.
You will also need to have an installation of Couchbase Server 2.0 and have obtained the latest Couchbase .NET Client Library, version 1.2 or higher. See “Getting Started” for more information on client installation.
You also may use an older version of ASP.NET MVC if you do not have MVC 4 installed, but as with using Visual Web Developer or Visual Studio 2012, the templates shown in the screenshots will vary from what you see.
You should also have installed the beer-sample database on your Couchbase Server. If you haven't, simply open the web console and navigate to the “Settings” tab. There, you'll find an option to add a sample bucket to your cluster.
