Become a Couchbase Expert

The  Couchbase Developer Expert (CDE) program is an invitation only-program that recognizes elite contributors to the Couchbase Open Source Project.
Unlike a Couchbase Champion, who may only participate with the community through a single channel, a CDE participates in a variety of activities:

- Actively running Couchbase-related code in production. This could be an application that uses Couchbase Mobile in one of the app stores, an application or service that uses Couchbase Server tooling for Couchbase that's freely available (e.g. Reactive Couchbase or the Titanium wrapper for Lite), or code committed in a Couchbase project (e.g. the Java SDK).

- Supporting the Couchbase Open Source Project and expanding the community through contributions to mailing lists, forums, blogs, Twitter, meet-ups and other channels as well as speaking at various industry or Couchbase hosted events.

- Demonstrating knowledge expertise in at least one particular area, e.g. working with the Python SDK, deep knowledge of Couchbase Mobile for Android or iOS, etc.
