Founders' Series: O’Reilly’s Definitive Guide with Ben Darnell, Chief Architect

Recorded on Tuesday, Jun 28, 2022

60 minutes

We recently published an “animal book” with O’Reilly called CockroachDB: The Definitive Guide. This book, penned by Ben Darnell, Guy Harrison, and Jesse Seldes, was ultimately a labor of love that runs 461 pages and took hundreds of hours to compile.  

Through this process, we learned a lesson or two about our product as we intended to distill the complexities of our database into prose. And in this session, we’ll talk through some of the cool aspects of our database with industry analyst Guy Harrison and our co-founder Ben Darnell. This group represents some of the best minds in distributed databases and we’ll talk through:

  • An outline of the book and where to get started
  • How to learn and think about distributed systems and databases
  • Practical advice for migrating to CockroachDB
  • …And some war stories about writing a book

We will be giving away 50 physical copies of O’Reilly’s “CockroachDB: The Definitive Guide” to the first attendees of the webinar! Currently only shipping to North America and Europe at this time.
