Traditional relational databases weren’t designed for today’s customers. Learn about the world’s first NoSQL Engagement Database purpose-built for the new era of customer experience.

Not too long ago, I wrote a lengthy tutorial on how to use Node.js and Couchbase to create a URL shortener. This tutorial used N1QL for querying the data. To complement that write-up, I've gone ahead and created a video tutorial to demonstrate how to develop this application from scratch and test it using a variety of tools.


This video is a great way to sit back and see exactly how it is done, eliminating any gray area in the development process. By the end of it, you should have the knowledge to build a nice RESTful API using the Couchbase Node.js SDK and N1QL.

If you are new to Couchbase and need help getting setup, there are Mac, Linux, and Windows tutorials available to walk you through it.  If you want to learn more about the Node.js SDK, visit the Couchbase Developer Portal.

Learn how the world’s first NoSQL Engagement Database delivers unparalleled performance at any scale for customer experience innovation that never ends.
