The machine I use to teach with just died a nasty hardware death. There was a flash and a pop as I was booting it. It actually made me duck. So I am doing my best to recreate the list of resources I used this evening in class.
(The machine was old, don’t be sad.)
This is the redis site: redis.
Here is the redis wikipedia article: redis wik.
This is the couchdb site: couchdb.
The Apache wiki article on couchdb is very nice: wiki couchdb.
Also, please read the following in the textbooks:
7 dbs in 7 days: Chapters 6 and 8.
NoSQL Distilled material on CouchDB: pages 61 to 65, pages 94 and 95.
No SQL Distilled material on Redis: pages 81 and 82.
7 DBs in 7 Days material on CouchDB: Chapter 6.
7 DBs in 7 Days material on Redis: Chapter 8.
Also, the NoSQL Distilled book is organized conceptually, so the information on CouchDB and Redis is distributed throughout the book.
For the second exam:
Please note that we have now covered all of 7 DBs in 7 Days, NoSQL Distilled, and Getting Started with NoSQL.
