RavenDB vs MongoDB: Which is Better? This White Paper compares the two leading NoSQL Document Databases on 9 features to find out which is the best solution for your next project.  

CouchApps are web applications built using CouchDB, JavaScript, and HTML5. CouchDB is a document-oriented database that stores JSON documents, has a RESTful HTTP API, and is queried using map/reduce views. This talk will answer your basic questions about CouchDB, but will focus on building CouchApps and related tools such as: couchapp, a command line tool used to generate code templates and push CouchApps to CouchDB instances; Evently, a jQuery library used for writing JavaScript applications; CouchDB API, a jQuery library that abstracts access to CouchDB’s core API; CouchApp Loader, used to load design document classes into JavaScript applications; Pathbinder, a JavaScript framework that triggers events based on URL hashes; and Mustache, a JavaScript templating framework.

Here are the slides from this Oscon presentation with code samples and the trade-offs of using CouchDB:
