How I use RavenDB

From my Octoblog: How Octopus uses RavenDB

When I started building Octopus Deploy, I wanted to build something that worked well enough to release a beta and start getting feedback. I had plenty of experience with SQL Server and NHibernate/EF, so I decided to go with a SQL Server + EF Code First stack for my persistence layer.

In the recent 1.0 RC release, I switched Octopus to use RavenDB. In this post I'll explain the reason for the change, and show how it is being used.

A picture of me

Welcome, my name is Paul Stovell. I live in Brisbane and work on Octopus Deploy, an automated deployment tool for .NET applications.

Prior to founding Octopus Deploy, I worked for an investment bank in London building WPF applications, and before that I worked for Readify, an Australian .NET consulting firm. I also worked on a number of open source projects and was an active user group presenter. I was a Microsoft MVP for WPF from 2006 to 2013.
