As a sponsor of the DevNexus 2023 conference in Atlanta, Couchbase showcased its NoSQL database solutions to the attendees. We had a booth in the hall and a speaking session discussing JSON Data Modeling. Finally, the event was capped off with a prize drawing for two Raspberry Pi computers.

At the booth, attendees had the opportunity to learn more about key features of Couchbase, such as its familiar query language SQL++, flexible JSON data model, and the Capella DBaaS. Attendees from a variety of local companies came by the booth to discuss databases.

We brought some swag, including bags and pens, but the most popular swag had to be the Java mascot “Duke” Couchbase stickers.

The most attractive thing about the Couchbase booth, beyond the idea of SQL for JSON, was the prize giveaway: two Raspberry Pi 4 Model B computers.Raspberry Pi Giveaway at DevNexus 2023

Everyone had ideas of interesting things to build with the Raspberry Pi, including deploying Couchbase Server, which now has ARM support. Hundreds of people entered to win. Congrats to the winners: Frank W and Ravindra T!

I was very busy during DevNexus, presenting JSON Data Modeling for Document Databases on Thursday. There were many insightful and interesting questions, and I appreciated how engaged the DevNexus audience was.

Then, I also appeared on the DevOps Speakeasy podcast, which was being recorded live on a stage throughout the event. Make sure to follow and subscribe for great DevOps content.

Thank you DevNexus, for having Couchbase be a part of your event, and thank you to all the speakers and everyone who stopped by the Couchbase booth. We’ll see you again soon!
