January 2009 Chicago.pm Meeting

On January 27th we'll kick off the new year of Chicago.pm with a meeting  
with not one, but two featured talks!

Jeremy Wall will be talking about development with CouchDB. He'll be  
highlighting the differences between CouchDB and a traditional RDBMS.  
During his talk you will see how to set up a CouchDB schema and write views  
to retrieve data from the CouchDB Schema. He'll also share some of his  
experience and point out some of the gotcha's you might encounter when  
writing views. And of course, the Perl tie-in... Jeremy will show off his  
CPAN Module for CouchDB.

For those who don't know, CouchDB, or more formally, Apache CouchDB, is a  
free and open source document-oriented database written in the Erlang  
programming language. It is designed for extreme scalability and is easily  
deployed to multi-core or multi-server clusters.

We'll also hear from Andrew Dougherty, who will give us an update of his  
FRDCSA project. FRDCSA is an advanced Artificial Intelligence created by  
automatically scouring the web for advanced AI systems, retrieving and  
packaging them for various operating systems, and finally building upon  
these packages. Incidentally, many systems not considered to be AI are also  
necessary as part of the operating system infrastructure.

There you have it... databases written in functional programming languages  
and advanced topics in artificial analysis. If that's not enough technical  
goodness to get you to brave the Chicago cold, I'm not sure what is. See  
you on the 27th.
