What the developer community should be expecting from database creators


Long before Tesla, the first electric car appeared in 1841, a century and a half ago. In 1899, an electric car set a record of 105 kilometers per hour and drove 130 kilometers on a single charge. But it was internal combustion engines that ruled for the next hundred years. Elon Musk has just been going back to long-forgotten technology.

The same thing has happened with databases: object-oriented databases appeared in the 1980s, though it took the introduction of NoSQL for them to gain popularity. Why did it happen that way? What’s the internal logic behind how databases, storage engines, and query languages are developed?

We’re going to talk about:

  • How database developers react to the needs of the IT community
  • Why databases have evolved the way they have
  • What we can expect in the future as well as the promising developments already underway
  • How we as developers will be able to leverage those developments

Those questions will be answered by leaders of the HighLoad++ community, speakers, and members of the program committee.
