The document NoSQL model can seem scary coming from a RDBMS that had a language and a well defined structure for querying data. Instead of running SQL queries to get data you typically find yourself modeling your data to match the query capabilities of the system or doing lots of work in the application based on key-value access. In Couchbase it doesn’t have to be that way.
Learn some best practices around modeling your NoSQL data and see various ways to query that data using Couchbase’s new N1QL query language. Then you will get a sense of what application development is like in the context of a sample web application and Couchbase’s SDKs for Java, Node.js, C# and others.
