An Introduction to Using CouchDB with Django

It is an ideological rival to relational databases, and instead of being focused on highly detailed schemas (long ints, varchars of length 25, and blobs of binary data, oh my) it deals in documents.

Beyond that, CouchDB brings some other unexpected goodies to the table like document versioning.
