Agility with Data Modeling at DIRECTV Using N1QL in Couchbase with Node.js

Agility with Data Modeling at DIRECTV Using N1QL in Couchbase with Node.js

Today’s companies are challenged to change rapidly and while maintaining high quality standards. Managing Entity–relationship models has become a constraint to these objectives. Now, NoSQL solutions and dynamic languages are offering a simplified approach to modeling real world objects. In particular, JavaScript offers an end-to-end solution – from the user’s web browser to the JSON object stored in the database. By integrating Couchbase into the picture, the performance and flexibility offered by projects with these technologies will become the next big thing: fast paced development, agile changes, high performance, easily scalable, and feature rich. This presentation is about the benefits and challenges of an architecture based on: Node.js, Couchbase and N1QL.

Building MVC Node.js Applications with Couchbase Server

Building MVC Node.js Applications with Couchbase Server

MongoDB has been the default database choice in the Node.js world for too long. That’s largely been thanks to the Mongoose ODM, which makes it simple to create an MVC pattern application with some of the same abstraction you’d get from a full framework such as Rails. Now that we have the Ottoman ODM for Couchbase, it’s far easier to build Node.js apps backed by Couchbase. In this talk, I’ll show how to build a simple Node.js application that follows the MVC pattern. At first I’ll start out using the Node.js client directly, both through key-value access and with N1QL, and then I’ll switch to using Ottoman to show just how effortless it can be to use Couchbase Server in your Node.js applications.
