BOSTON, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudant, provider of a globally distributed database-as-a-service (DBaaS), today announced it will host Apache CouchDB Conf Vancouver, a one-day conference for the CouchDB community November 13, 2013, in Vancouver, Canada.

At Apache CouchDB Conf Vancouver, participants will learn about CouchDB and related technologies, covering everything from getting started to advanced features and internals, app development, and best practices. Attendees will also get updates on other projects in the community, including Hoodie, PouchDB, and RCouch.

  • What: Apache CouchDB Conf Vancouver
  • Where: Vancouver, BC, Canada
  • When: November 13, 2013
  • Who: People interested in learning more about CouchDB and the development of data-rich Web and mobile applications with global scalability and unique database replication capabilities

The event's call for speakers is currently open, and closes at midnight U.S. Pacific Time on September 13, 2013. To submit a speaking proposal, visit or see the official announcement on the Apache CouchDB blog for more details.

As an additional incentive to attend, Apache CouchDB Conf is happening the day before CascadiaJS (November 14-15, 2013) at the same venue. Because of the overlap between the JavaScript and CouchDB communities, the back-to-back conferences provide a single destination for developers of data-driven Web apps.

Cloudant is a strong backer of the CouchDB community, with several Apache CouchDB project committers employed at the company. The Vancouver Apache CouchDB Conf event is a follow-up to CouchDB Conf Berlin, where Cloudant engineers and the CouchDB community laid the groundwork for the BigCouch/CouchDB code merge, contributing unique clustering and performance capabilities to help Apache CouchDB run at large scale across distributed data centers.

Cloudant's CouchDB-based database-as-a-service (DBaaS) is hosted on leading infrastructure providers and scaled across multiple data centers worldwide. Cloudant experts monitor, manage and optimize every node across its network around the clock to deliver high availability, load-balancing, clustering, and database scalability.
