One Database to Rule All Workloads? With Jon "Natty" Natkins of dbt Labs
Play • 36 min

Will the dream of a mythical database to handle all workloads (transactional + analytical) ever become a reality, or does it violate the laws of physics?

Natty knows databases, and this episode will take you on a historical romp through the rise and fall of Hadoop, the transition to cloud data warehouses, and what's waiting for us next in database-land.
