Goodbye Couchbase

2016-07-04 08:57

I'm no longer with Couchbase. That's a pretty significant change for me. I've been with Couchbase (Couchio, CouchOne) for over 6 years, it was on May 12th 2010 when I got my Couchio email address. I was even still studying back then. It was a great time, I learnt a lot and it was a pleasure to work with so many skilled people.

Though there are exciting times ahead. I'm working with Damien Katz on a fancy new project which includes the technologies I really like to work with. It's build with Rust and the storage back-end is RocksDB. More on that as we go.

Surely some may wonder what will happen to GeoCouch. I don't know about the future of it when it comes to Couchbase, that's beyond my control. Though I do control GeoCouch in regards to Apache CouchDB. I surely want to get it working with the upcoming Apache CouchDB 2.0 release. GeoCouch might look pretty different from what it is now. I'd like to base the back-end on RocksDB. That's the reason why I'm implementing an R-tree on top of RocksDB. This also means that GeoCouch again is a free-time project of me, though that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Big change yes, where are you going? Btw we should sync on IRC one of these days, having your rtree binded in https://github.com/barrel-db/barrel_rocksdb would make it available to the erlang side :) And probably barrel later.

    Good luck in your new gig!
