Introduction to CouchDB Welcome to this module on Introduction to CouchDB. I'm Abhishek Kant, your guide for this course. You can find me online with my Twitter handle @abhishekkant. We will begin this module by understanding the NoSQL classification as it applies to CouchDB. While CouchDB can be installed on various operating systems, in this course, we will see how to install CouchDB on Windows. Next, we will take a look at what it takes to make CouchDB function. This is where we uncover the basics of CouchDB. The easiest way to get started with CouchDB is with its management GUI called Futon. Here we will learn how to perform basic tasks like reading, adding, updating, and deleting a document using Futon GUI. The final module attempts to leverage your knowledge of SQL world to dive deeper into the NoSQL universe. We compare and contrast the difference between Microsoft SQL Server and CouchDB NoSQL database.
Data Documents in CouchDB Welcome to this module on working with data documents in CouchDB. I'm Abhishek Kant, your guide for this course. You can find me on Twitter with my handle abhishekkant. CouchDB is inspired by real world documents. In the earlier module we saw how adding personal details with varying fields can be easily managed in CouchDB. Here are some other real world documents that we frequently come across: bills and receipts, medical prescriptions, letters. And structured forms, like tax declaration. What is common against all of them is that they are all self contained documents. So, as you think about storing data in CouchDB, you may want to think about modeling your data to reflect the real world entities. We have a paradigm in software development for it called the business object. This module is about leaping from the knowledge gained in the earlier module to understanding the bare-metal characteristics of CouchDB. We need to refresh some basic concepts and this is what we will cover first, the web refresher. Next we will work with CouchDB documents without using the Futon interface introduced in the last module. This is made possible by the rich REST API supported by CouchDB. We will work with Fiddler, an HTTP debugging tool to explore this API. We will end the Module by discussing Concurrency in CouchDB.
Special Data Operations in CouchDB In an earlier module, we saw how to perform simple CRUD operations in CouchDB. This module is about learning special data operations possible in CouchDB. I am Abhishek Kant and you can reach me on my email alias [email protected] net. We will start this module by learning how to do faster batch operations in CouchDB. We will spend a little time on revisiting attachment support in CouchDB. Change notifications are a powerful feature of CouchDB. And we will see that in action next. CouchDB's replication also stands out for its ease of use. We will round up the module by discussing the replication features.
Design Documents in CouchDB Welcome to this module on Design Documents in CouchDB. In the earlier modules, we've seen a lot of possibilities with data documents. Let us now jump into exploring the utility of design documents in CouchDB. I'm Abhishek Kant, your host and guide for this course. In this module, we will begin with an introduction to the anatomy of design documents. One of the most important design documents is the view that allows for queries to happen. We will cover this next. There are additional constructs that help provide programmatic control over CouchDB. These include validation functions, show and list functions, and update functions. Only update functions have the capability to create side effects in CouchDB. The rest are read-only functions.
Security in CouchDB Welcome to this module on security in CouchDB. I'm Abhishek Kant, your coach for this course. You can find me on Twitter with my handle abhishekkant. Till now, we haven't talked about security in CouchDB. Let us change that. In this module, we will start by exploring the overall security model of CouchDB for authentication and authorization. We will follow that by contrasting the CouchDB security model with the SQL server security. CouchDB comes with a relaxed security out of the box. We will learn how to secure the default installation of CouchDB next. In the end we will see how cookie based authentication can be implemented by applications aiming to connect with CouchDB.
A New Query Language: MapReduce Welcome to this module on A New Query Language: MapReduce. I am Abhishek Kant, and I am your guide for this course. You can find me on twitter with my handle Abhishek Kant. This is a module that builds on the design documents that we saw in an earlier module. We will start this module with a basic introduction to Map/Reduce Language. We will then delve into understanding the anatomy of the map function followed by the anatomy of the reduce function. We will see how to write these functions and invoke them. A large part of this module will be spent on mapping T-SQL statements to their corresponding Map/Reduce equivalence.
