Hi Any, hi Garren,

thanks for the warm welcome! 

@Andy – this looks really useful, thanks for sharing! I'm currently trying to deal with
the tons of CouchDB-related information I'm currently getting, and I'm sure this doc helps
@Garren – easiest may be email ( or on Twitter (@ffffux) :)

way to send you links or information. I work on Fauxton (the new Couchdb web UI), and it would
be nice to let you know when we add new feature thats worth telling the larger community about.

"CouchDB weekly news" collection on the CouchDB blog. And this is what I'd like to share my
thoughts on with you.

things that have been going on in the past week.

year now (find all posts here:
). It helped us a lot in a few ways: after a few weeks, people started asking for it when
we couldn't post it once. It also helps us reach more people, spread our own content better
and all in all we got a lot of very good feedback. People tell us they're looking forward
to these posts each week.

CouchDB community, that it could be possible to reach something similar for CouchDB, too.
Due to the different community structure, the CouchDB weekly news will be far more tech-focussed
than the ones I'm doing for Hoodie. My work on this will be supported by Cloudant; Jan and
Noah have already agreed to give me general feedback, especially in the first weeks.
>> I'm aiming to dive deeper into what's happening in the CouchDB community for reasons
of personal curiosity and interest; and I'm definitely hoping to support your work on CouchDB's
Marketing with this in the long term. I'll also aim for supporting CouchDB's marketing with
other work besides these "weekly news", I'll try to keep track of the things I can do via
this mailing list and also stay in contact with Noah :)

I'll be trying to get into this in the next weeks and I'd really appreciate your feedback.
So if you'd love to add things here, know about a relevant source / piece of writing that
should be in there or want to give general feedback: I'd really love to hear from you.
>> Looking forward to working with you!
