devLink 2011

I was lucky enough to get subbed in last minute to give my CouchDB talk at devLink this past week. This was my first time speaking at a technical conference and it turned out to be a great experience.  I did the same bucket demo that worked so well at the user group and it was just as messy and just as awesome as before.

I'm guessing there was 40-50 people there and I had 30 people fill out response forms. The audience was really engaged and asked a lot of good questions.  The feedback was positive, so that's a bit of a relief. I really hope everyone enjoyed the talk as much as I enjoyed giving it.

The slides from my talk can be downloaded here. The sample app I demoed can be found on github ( and the CouchDB/Wikipedia demo is also up on github (
