If you're interested in learning more about using CouchDB then you've come to the right place. Max Ogden recently joined Code for America and has a gift for introducing complicated concepts in an approachable manner. Who would have thought taco databases would be so fun :)?
Another Code for America fellow Chacha Sikes took notes on the talk. The most awesome part of the talk for me was discovering the Antepenultimate CouchDB Reference Card (cheat sheet). This guide is the ultimate DM screen (reference for you old school dungeon and dragons players) with incredibly handy reference material, all at your finger tips. Thanks to Jan-Piet Mens for his work putting it together.
