Hi everyone, my name is Kamran Ayub and welcome to my course RavenDB: 4 Getting Started.

I’m a developer, instructor, speaker, and all-around technologist with experience at multiple Fortune 500 companies building small to massive-scale web applications.

RavenDB is an open source cross-platform NoSQL document database that’s been around for years--but the latest version has been rewritten from the ground up! This course is an introduction for folks new to Raven or for those of you who want to see what’s new in 4.0.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Raven concepts and features
  • The new Studio management interface
  • Basic document operations
  • Querying and indexing

By the end of this course, you’ll understand what Raven brings to the table and have a solid foundation to get started building your own applications powered by Raven.

While the sample application and demos are presented in C# and ASP.NET, Raven is just a database server and the course focuses on concepts and features that will help you get started on any platform with any of the available client SDKs for JavaScript, Go, Python, or Java.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Raven with the RavenDB 4: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
