As a sponsor of the DevIntersection 2022 conference in Las Vegas, Couchbase was able to showcase its NoSQL database solutions to the attendees. We had a booth in the expo hall and a speaking session where I discussed caching. Finally, the event was capped off with a very popular prize drawing.
At the booth, attendees had the opportunity to learn more about Couchbase’s key features, such as its familiar query language SQL++, flexible JSON data model, and the Capella DBaaS. Many attendees stopped by to speak with Couchbase’s engineers and staff and to check out brief demos of Couchbase Capella in action.
We brought some swag, including stickers and pens, but the most popular swag had to be the Couchbase-branded Doohickey and the bamboo-cased sticky note set.
In addition to the booth, Couchbase also participated in a speaking session. This session covered the basics of caching: reading, writing, eviction, and distributed caching. Attendees asked questions and were able to follow up with more discussion at the booth afterwards.
Probably the most attractive thing about the Couchbase booth, beyond the idea of SQL for JSON, was the prize giveaway. A Lego Nintendo Entertainment System set.
Everyone had stories of playing the NES when they were kids. Over 350 people entered to win the set. Sadly, it’s not a working NES and can’t play cartridges, but it’s still a fun prize just in time for the holidays. Congrats to the winner, Ethan M!
Thank you DevIntersection, for having Couchbase be a part of your event, and thank you to all the speakers and everyone who stopped by the Couchbase booth.
