Another CouchDB case study this time from Anologue:
Initial goal: enable any number of people to view a web page that would serve as a sort of chat-room. Generate a link, share it with whomever you’d like to participate in the dialogue, type your name and text to add to the conversation.
I’d speculate that CouchDB was used due to its possibly simplified architecture of the web app and its document-based data model. Definitely not based on some “fake” or just plain wrong reasons.
Adding it to the list of CouchDB case studies.
