People and Potential: Why I Joined Yugabyte

People and Potential: Why I Joined Yugabyte

When I first started my graduate studies in databases in 2012, I remember reading a freshly-minted paper that was making big waves in the DB community: Spanner: Google’s Globally-Distributed Database.

The Call to Adventure

My distributed SQL story begins late in 2019, back at my previous internship at a Norwegian startup called Cognite.
