Open Source projects are only as good as the people that work on them. A project's first objective should be to increase its developer base. Consequently, this talk invites you to learn what little it takes to make a meaningful contribution to CouchDB.

This talk is a tour through the CouchDB Apache project and wider community. It explains the way the peoject works and where it can be improved, and how.

One of the bigger stumbling blocks for contributors is CouchDB's implementation language Erlang. However, there is plenty to do without ever touching Erlang and we'll show you what you can do.

Finally, if you are not afraid to dive in, we'll give you a gentle introduction to CouchDB's Erlang implementation.
