More ops work means less time to code
Full stack developers have many responsibilities across frontend, backend, and ops. It’s difficult to know and do it all.
Couchbase Capella is a managed DBaaS that removes the burden of provisioning, maintaining, and updating development and production environments. It gives developers back the time they need to focus on business requirements instead of running and managing infrastructure.
Juggling databases adds work
Different data solutions in one stack lead to more complexity, more dependencies to manage, more datasource to stitch up, and more code to write.
Couchbase can do the work of multiple separate solutions while providing a unified development experience. Instead of using separate solutions for caching, JSON document storage, SQL, full-text search, and real-time analytics, you can use one database, one SDK, and one API.
Will it integrate with your stack?
Full stack developers rely on a well-defined technology stack. It's hard to find a database that meets every need and integrates with your ecosystem.
Couchbase integrates with many full-stack solutions like Ruby on Rails, React/Express/Node.js, Next.js, and Remix. ODM libraries are available for Node.js, Ruby, and Java. And Couchbase will soon be integrated with popular cloud providers like Vercel and Netlify, with support for simple REST API and GraphQL.
Learning new technologies takes time
As a full stack developer, you have to know a lot about everything in your stack. Some database query languages are much harder to learn than others.
Couchbase provides different ways to query data, and they’re all familiar to most developers. From a simple key-value API, to SQL with support for transactions and JOINS, to different ODMs in different languages, developers can choose the way they want to work with their data.
