Watch the webinar

A serverless database is the next step in our mission to help developers build world-changing applications. In this conversation with Cockroach Labs CEO Spencer Kimball, we’ll discuss why a serverless database is going to fundamentally change the way that developers work with databases and how CockroachDB has been building towards this moment for years.

In this conversation, Spencer is going to discuss why developers are going to love consuming a serverless SQL database, how CockroachDB has been building to this moment, and what the future of application development is going to look like with a powerful serverless SQL database available for free. Along the way we’ll be sure to cover:

  • The evolution of CockroachDB: Distributed SQL, Kubernetes, Pebble, and Serverless
  • Why ‘serverless’ is a better way to consume software
  • What kind of applications are great fits for a serverless database
  • How a serverless SQL database is distinct from other ‘serverless databases’

Spencer and Jim could probably talk about serverless databases and application development for days without food or water but we’ll limit this session to around 45 minutes. We strongly encourage you to ask questions during the session and to that end, it might be helpful if you spin up some free clusters using this link. Save your seat, tell your friends, we can’t wait to see you there!
