Newbie Needs to be Pointed to Instructions

Hello Everyone. I need help with the following.

  • Please point me to a document(s) on flattening a relational schema into couch documents. Examples preferred
  • Please point me to the simplest instructions on storing a BLOB like pdf, xlsx or images in CouchDB. The simpler the instructions, the better. Like 1,2,3.

Thanks ya’ll!

Thank you @jkurtz. I read the articles. I couldn’t find a date on the Storing Blobs article but i’m disappointed by the chucking in/concatenating out design. Do you or anyone you know of implement this on a large scale?
