Pythonic NoSQL with Couchbase

A session at PyCon UK 2012

  • Benjamin Young

Friday 28th September, 2012

3:30pm to 4:00pm (GMT)

"In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess." NoSQL's ambiguity is well known. What is it? How is it different? As it turns out, NoSQL document storage databases such as Couchbase achieve PEP 20 "compliance." We'll hit some of the most applicable Zen of Python aspects and see how Couchbase Server achieves them, and how to use the Couchbase Server Python SDK to add some pythonic nosql goodness to your next application.
Explicit is better than implicit. - define exactly what you want in your MapReduce index using JavaScript. Simple is better than complex. - JSON documents all the way down. Flat is better than nested. - no tables, just one "honking" bucket. Readability counts. - no ORM, no unnecessary magic, just JSON objects. Now is better than never. - obviously.
