RavenDB is the poster child for document databases in the .NET world. As the NoSQL movement goes mainstream many .NET developers are curious to know more about this tool. In this tutorial we will give you the skills you need to get up and running with RavenDB. The tutorial will leave with you an understanding of what a document DB is and when to use it, how to perform basic CRUD operations against one, and what you need to know to deploy one to production.

We will also discuss RavenDB 1.2 upcoming release and all the goodies that are coming with it.
