If you’re new-ish to CouchDB, there might be a thing or two that you feel like you’ve got a good handle on, and then all of the sudden you’re missing some document revisions. Using MVCC tokens as a revision control system? That’s gonna cause you some grief! 😬

Fortunately, this video from Joan Touzet on 10 common misconceptions about CouchDB will definitely help clarify some things for you, like whether view groups are for developer convenience, or whether to make every cell of your SQL table a new doc. No spoilers here, so you’ll have to watch.
