A new application stack has evolved that is allowing us to speed development, be more nimble, serve more customers and become more efficient. Kubernetes, serverless, declarative infrastructure, CI/CD, git and tons of great new tech have already made major impacts on the app development process.

But what about the data? What’s changed for data in this new world?  How will we think about application data and transactions five and ten years from today? How will we define a database in a completely hosted, autonomous and global world? 
While nobody can predict the future, Spencer Kimball, co-founder and CEO of Cockroach Labs, has a line of sight on where we might be headed. In this conversation with Spencer, we’ll talk through:
  • The impact of a new stack on application development
  • The current state of the “state of the art” in database tech
  • The impact of cloud, serverless and 5G in modern data intensive services
  • A vision for the 2025 and 2030 database
Things change fast in our world and we hope this talk will give you at least a general direction of where we all might be headed so you can prepare your apps and systems for a global and data intensive future!
