Why we built Neon

Date: 2022-10-28
Time: 10:30–11:20
Room: Madrid
Level: Intermediate

Before Neon, I was the founder CTO and then CEO of SingleStore (formerly known as MemSQL). That’s where, I both understood the needs of the transactional databases market first hand and saw the ubiquity of Postgres. In 2021, we started building Neon, a new serverless Postgres cloud service.

What does it mean to be serverless? Why does it matter? Why open source?
