  == Meet CouchDB ==
  CouchDB is often categorized as a “NoSQL” database, a term that became increasingly
popular in late 2009, and early 2010. While this term is a rather generic, and sometimes offensive,
characterization of a database, or data store, it does clearly define a break from traditional
SQL-based databases. CouchDB makes a clean break from the SQL database world in many ways.
One of the primary differences is the lack of a schema, or rigid pre-defined data structures
such as tables. Data stored in CouchDB is a JSON document(s). The structure of the data, or
document(s), can change dynamically to accommodate evolving needs.
