Couchbase has virtualized its annual NoSQL developer conference, Couchbase Connect, and is offering three days of free content on Couchbase for developers - who can sit on their own comfortable couches to watch and participate interactively. Register for the chance to win a prize.
The conference will include announcements on new facilities in Couchbase products, and the conference team says they have over 100 sessions planned that cover topics such as Couchbase Server, mobile, Kubernetes, query and indexing, analytics, development tips, and cloud deployment. It will also be interactive, allowing attendees to engage with presenters, Couchbase engineers and technical staff, and fellow attendees.
The sessions are organized into seven tracks:
Ravi Mayuram, Couchbase CTO, will give the opening keynote on key trends and the evolving requirements of Couchbase and NoSQL databases in the new decade. Mayuram's theme is that while the trend to separate compute from storage is well under way, especially in analytic circles, there are new requirements for modern, edge-enabled applications.
Sessions are planned for what's new in several Couchbase products, including Couchbase Server, Couchbase Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes. Other sessions will look at the N1QL language and its role as SQL for JSON; mobile and edge looking at Couchbase Lite as the local embedded secure storage; and Sync Gateway for bidirectional sync. New facilities will also be discussed for Couchbase Cloud, including support for Couchbase Server 6.6, and plans for multicloud and self-services versions.
To encourage people to interact with the conference, Couchbase has come up with a number of 'challenges' that can earn delegates points to compete for a number of prizes, including a Chaos Tower, Lego Saturn V Rocket, AirPods and Nintendo Switch.
The initial set of 'challenges' looks fairly straightforward, starting with registering for the conference, filling out your profile, and attending the virtual keynote session, but the organizers promise there'll be more ways to win points once you've registered.
The conference runs from October 14-16.
