Relaxing with beer on the CouchDB

How else can you market an open source project?

I thought after my last post on MongoDB it would only be fair to do one on CouchDB. How do I know about CouchDB? Well, I think it shows up on hacker news less often than Mongo so the main reason I know about it is Dale Harvey. Dale works for Couchbase and is sometimes seen wearing his CouchDB t-shirt in Appleton Tower, hub of Edinburgh’s startup scene and where I work.

He’s spoken about CouchDB at Edinburgh’s Tech Meetup. Most of the rest of what I know about Couch has come from Dale while in the pub.

What’s the point of this post? Have a good ambassador. How do you get them? Make something hackers like. It probably helps to do it in a fun language like Erlang.
