I was invited back on the Pete on Software Podcast to talk about Couchbase. Pete is a an independent software developer/architect, and he also runs The Swift Ninja blog. Pete and I run into eachother occasionally here in Ohio, and it was great to be back on the show with him.

In this episode we talk about things like:

  • What is Couchbase?
  • What languages can you use with Couchbase? What SDKs are available?
  • Can Couchbase be used on premise? In the cloud?
  • Can Couchbase be used in conjuction with RDBMS, or is it “all in”?
  • How does Couchbase compare to other document databases?
  • Why I wanted to work at Couchbase (I didn’t work for the Couchbase the last time I was on his show).
  • How does Couchbase make money (i.e. is Couchbase going to be around for a while)?
  • The CouchCase project!
