Three core conference tracks include a dedicated developer track, ops and admin sessions, and lots of customers like Nielsen and Orbitz to share use cases and experiences with Couchbase. Dozens of smaller interactive sessions will focus on advanced tech topics and cool new stuff (like mobile and projects from Couchbase labs). You can also meet Couchbase geeks at the Geek Bar… and grab a cold one (or two) from the open bar at the after party.
