Subject Re: CouchDB Articles, Pills and Tutorials Ideas
Date Fri, 08 May 2015 06:43:45 GMT
Seems ermouth wants to add an article on "differences between
couchapps,hoodie,cloudwall,smileupps"..
Can someone add or give permissions to add this list to the wiki?

Anyway, before this discussion derailed, we were talking about content
obsolescence and I agree with Alexander it's a very important topic!

Maybe, members of this community, can create their content on wikis and
blogs we can control, such as couchdb wiki, smileupps wiki :), personal
blogs and so on?

But, publishing content on social media instead, requires much more care
from us. They will always remain in the future, and tech topics outdate
very soon. We know it very well with couchapps ;)

Therefore, agreed with anyone, that nothing can be a silver-bullet, any
flavour of app-framework has its own specific limitations today.. agreed
this, NONE can say how they will evolve!!

Indeed, given that use cases depend on:

- MOSTLY on app software architecture (up to app dev)

- STRONGLY on underlying technologies (couchdb devs)

- and then finally on hardware

and hopefully all of these variables constantly improve, it is usually not
possible for us to strongly bound an app-framework to some specific use
cases.

Maybe the next couchdb or rcouch will have a load balancer within it? or
couchapp scalability will be possible? or maybe that is already possible?
Who knows?

Technology key strenghts are soon forgotten, but weaknesses usually remain
for long time in app-devs' minds. Therefore IMHO, at least for content
published on exernal media, talking of couchdb downsides, is ok if it comes
from people external to this community, because we can't control the
internet or others' minds... but it's far less acceptable if it comes from
the inside of this community. Or at least it should not have a so negative
impact for the future.

What do you think?
