Episode 107: What Does Life Look Like Post-SQL? Ask EdgeDB.

AUTHOR: Robby (Cowboy VC) & Tim (Essence VC)

Yury Selivanov is the Co-founder & CEO of EdgeDB, the open-source database designed as a successor to SQL and the relational paradigm. Their open source graph-relational database, edgeDB, has a built-in migration system and a next-generation query language.

EdgeDB has raised $19M from investors including Accel, Nava Ventures, and Pear VC.

In this episode, we discuss how they took a first principles approach to building a truly developer-first database (ie. building with postgres), the importance they put on having a short learning curve for their database, how they think about breaking through the noise of the many competitive developer-first databases that have launched in recent years, why all open source databases should use the cloud model to monetize & more!

Go to to register for the upcoming EdgeDB 4.0 and Cloud launch!
