I’m excited to announce the new Couchbase Community Directory, designed to encourage engagement and community building. The goal is to give you the opportunity to become a more informed community member, helping you to engage more with other community members, Couchbase Experts and Champions, and Couchbase engineers. To kick-start this program, I’ve already created subgroups based on development languages, use cases, and specific areas to get involved such as Meetup groups and community writing.

Why you should join the Couchbase Community Directory

Participating Couchbase Community Members will receive:

  • Latest product updates and release notes
  • Invitations and promotional codes for Couchbase Connect and Couchbase Day events as well as community events such as Meetups, Partner events, and workshops
  • Opportunities to get involved with product beta programs
  • Opportunities to become involved as a user and/or customer reference, Meetup organizer, mentor, speaker, and more
  • A personal listing on the Couchbase Community Directory, where you can create your own rich profile and share the ways you want to be involved

SIGN UP and GET INVOLVED TODAY
