The original inclusion of CouchDB in Ubuntu was a coup for the NoSQL database in terms of both user base and publicity. The removals is is a bit of a body-blow for CouchDB, which has had its popularity called into question on Hacker News recently, particularly when compared with the rise in popularity of another NoSQL database of a similar vintage, MongoDB.

As a contract developer and manager I’ve worked in a wide range of enterprises in a variety of countries where I’ve encountered everything from great work, awful work, bizarre work, all the way down to quasi-legal work. If you think that you recognise your own organisation within my articles then you’re undoubtedly wrong, where you work isn’t that unique.
