- Past Event: August 12, Hamburg, Germany – CouchDB Meetup: Event recap from Klaus Trainer:
- “We mainly discussed PouchDB and its new pluggable backend architecture that has been enabled through the LevelUp project. We realized that this makes it very easy to connect many different data storage backends via the CouchDB replication protocol, which takes us a major step forward when it comes to establishing it as a standard protocol for data replication over HTTP.”

- August 23, FrOSCon, Bonn, Germany – lecture: A CouchDB replication endpoint in PHP

Time to relax!
- “But you can’t solve or let go of problems if you don’t allow yourself time to think about them. It’s an imperative ignored by our culture, which values doing more than thinking and believes answers are in the palm of your hand rather than in your own head.” – No Time to Think
- “When was the last time you consciously left your comfort zone entirely to challenge the unexpected, the unpredictable, the unfamiliar territory, to confront yourself with an entirely new set of complex problems — and find just the right solution for them?” – 5:26am
