Simply RethinkDB

A database with a query language for human

About the Book

The book is  finished about contents and concepts of RehinkDB. However, many grammar error needs to be corrected. On technical side,  I cover most of important stuff and give many example.

It's no doubt that jQuery starts a new generation for JavaScript. Many people hate jQuery nowadays but think of what it does back then. How it changed the way we work with JavaScript.

RethinkDB is just like that in database world. You don't have to look up the  ugly, tricky, hard to remember SQL syntax over and over. Because you now write the query in your programming language. Yes, you write query with your favourite language. And all are chainable.

RethinkDB give us: a beautiful dashboard make admin job easier. An awesome chainable APi make you feel like you are working with your code other than fiddling with SQL query.

If you are the guy who look up StackOverflow for every query, then this book is for you.

I write code, made websites, build some iOS app, and maintain server with Ansible on Arch Linux.  I'm a PHP developer for years and started to use Golang, Ruby, Erlang and NodeJS. However, I tent to write everything in Go lang or Erlang nowadays.

I'm crazy about monitoring system and building using RethinkDB and InfluxDB. I also make qSlider to control slideshow with your iPhone. Sometime I write tutorials too. 

If you like my books, please tweet about it or let your friends know. I appreciate.
