New Gig at Couchbase

Seems like my departure from Red Hat surprised a lot of people, at least that seems to be the primary reaction on twitter:

So what is my new gig?

I run the Developer Advocacy team at Couchbase.couchbase-logo

Couchbase is an open-source, NoSQL, document-oriented database that can be used both as a document database that stores JSON documents or a pure key-value database.

Read Why NoSQL to learn more about how Digital Transformation is necessitating the need of NoSQL in this economy.

Read Couchbase Customer Case Studies to learn more about who is using our product.

Some of the feedback on me joining Couchbase is very encouraging:
