EdgeDB with Yury Selivanov

Your Host

About this Episode

Eric Anderson (@ericmander) has a conversation with Yury Selivanov (@1st1), the co-founder of EdgeDB. EdgeDB is the world’s first “graph-relational database.” It’s a term coined specifically for this new type of database, designed to ease the pain of dealing with the usual relational and NoSQL models. And no, EdgeDB is NOT a graph database!

In this episode we discuss:

  • A glitch at EdgeDB’s Matrix-inspired launch event
  • Origin of the term and design philosophy, “graph-relational”
  • What to know about becoming a Python core developer
  • How EdgeDB’s next-gen query language compares to GraphQL and SQL
