Real-World JSON Data Modeling

In theory, data modeling for JSON is all about trade-offs. But what’s it like in reality? In this webcast, we’ll find out by using JSON to build a clone of the blogging platform Medium.com. To create our clone, we’ll use RealWorld, also known as “the mother of all demo apps.” For the backend, we’ll use Couchbase Capella™ DBaaS, our cloud database platform designed to power modern adaptive apps.

We’ll explore different solutions to achieve the best results for specific functionalities for users, articles, and comments. And for each choice we make, we’ll discuss why we made it and the impact on queryability. You’ll learn how the features offered by a database drive JSON data modeling trade-offs, and how Capella’s various query services enable developers to more easily build modern adaptive applications.

JSON Data Modeling in Document Databases

Are you interested in using a JSON document database, but feeling a little overwhelmed by some of the complexities? In this webcast, we’ll make JSON feel more familiar by using comparisons to traditional RDBMS modeling to guide you through the basics of data modeling with JSON. We’ll cover:

  • The right scenarios for using a document database and the impact on application code
  • Adaptive applications and how they benefit from the flexibility of document databases
  • How to use LLMs like Capella iQ to enhance database interactions and insights

We’ll primarily use the Couchbase Capella™ document database to illustrate our lessons, but the principles and techniques we discuss will be applicable to any JSON document store. You can expect to walk away with a clearer understanding of document databases and the innovative ways they can be used for modern adaptive applications.

Quantic Boosts Developer Productivity and Cuts Query Times by 50%

Developers often have formidable workloads and not enough time to get everything done, so taking database management off their plate can make a huge difference. In this webcast, you’ll learn how Quantic uses Couchbase Capella™ DBaaS to minimize database management tasks so their development team can focus on enhancing software products instead. Quantic’s founder will explain how the company uses Capella to power the cloud-based point of sale system used by their small and medium-size business customers. And we’ll discuss how Capella makes it easier for Quantic to keep pace with a rapidly growing number of customers, products, and features. You’ll learn how:

  • Quantic increased developer productivity and achieved 50% faster querying
  • A fully managed DBaaS lightens developer workloads, saves time, and reduces costs
  • Capella provides easy scalability, automatic offline sync, and an always-on experience

[DBTA] Bringing the Power of AI to IoT: Data Strategies and Enabling Technologies

Edge AI, which is the processing of AI on or in near-proximity to edge devices, holds tremendous value for IoT applications. But Edge AI can be difficult to achieve without the right database and supporting technology. In this panel discussion, hear experts in IoT technology explore the challenges in implementing AI at the edge, and learn strategies for success through real-world use cases.

[ActualTech Media] Supporting and Enabling Modern Applications

Modern applications, featuring cloud-native technologies like containers and Kubernetes, are capturing a large share of new application development. During this session, Mark Gamble shares how Couchbase Mobile offers the most comprehensive support for mobile and edge apps with a database that can process and sync data from the cloud to the edge to the device.

Writing Code With ChatGPT and Generative AI: Generally… Pretty Terrific

Developers are rapidly embracing resources like ChatGPT, GitHub Copilot Chat, and Bing for their ability to help write and debug code. But, even though these powerful LLMs are extremely useful, they still have their flaws. In this webcast, we’ll unravel the capabilities and limitations of AI-assisted coding through a blend of theoretical discussions, real-world examples, and live demos that demystify the operational nuances of generative AI. Whether you’re a developer, a tech enthusiast, or someone curious about the latest in AI, this session is tailored to give you a hearty mix of learning and interactive exploration.

How to Choose a Flexible Database Designed for Evolving Applications

Business applications must evolve constantly to keep up with ever-changing user expectations and to enable more efficient development and deployment. These relentless demands, along with the continuous introduction of new technologies like AI, also have a massive effect on database requirements. Because financial services companies have to adapt especially fast, that industry makes an excellent case study for application and database modernization. In this webcast, we’ll explore how Couchbase customers like PayPal, Equifax, and FICO use a distributed NoSQL cloud database platform to overcome the common data challenges of:

  • High availability – needed to support mobile, online, and transaction requirements globally
  • Data complexity – from transactional, market, customer, regulatory, risk, and other datasets
  • Mobile and real-time access – including in remote areas with limited or inconsistent internet
  • Scalability – to handle business growth and predictable or unpredictable spikes in demand
  • Data security and compliance – to meet a myriad of requirements in different regions

Couchbase Development Made Easy With New Plug-In for JetBrains

Are you an application developer who uses IntelliJ IDEA, Rider, GoLand, or PyCharm? If you want to elevate that experience, this webcast is tailor-made for you. While DataGrip already offers a robust suite of features, we’ve taken it a step further with our all-new Couchbase plug-in. Exclusively crafted for JetBrains IDEs, it will supercharge your productivity when you’re working with Couchbase databases. (Note that we engineered this plug-in specifically for the requirements of application developers as opposed to DBAs.)

After introducing you to the DataGrip platform, we’ll show you how to:

  • Install the Couchbase plug-in
  • Use SQL++ autocomplete, including buckets, scopes, and collections and their attributes
  • View, edit, and delete documents directly from the plug-in
  • Create new documents based on the schema of current documents in collections
  • Import and export data with collections and indexes
  • Export DDL and indexes
