Multiple Bucket Connections in Couchbase and Ruby

c = Couchbase.new("http://localhost:8091/pools/default/buckets/my-bucket")

Couchbase Developer Days and LivePerson: Who, What and Why?

I've recently returned from a rather brilliant Couchbase trip to Israel. My colleague Tug Grall and I lead the Couchbase Developer Day held at the LivePerson offices, which was followed by a Couchbase meetup with ILTechTalks.

Israel has an ever-growing, yet established, tech startup scene and Couchbase are becoming key players in supplying NoSQL solutions to tech companies who require the flexibility and performance that Couchbase delivers.  A short drive out of Tel Aviv city centre, in which I am staying, live the offices of LivePerson. A marvelously open-plan outfit, with a great atmosphere and even authentic home cooked meals for any late workers!  What seems to be a great place to work and a focused environment dedicated to new technologies, the LivePerson offices played host to a fantastic Couchbase Developer Day and evening Community Meetup.
