One more repost from my professional website, announcing the open-source database
In my yesterday’s post, I mentioned that there was not one, but two projects. The first project being the book, the second one is closely related to the first.
When Boris Novikov and I started to work on the book, we realized that we need a training database.
For years, we used examples from the real projects we worked on during different periods of our professional careers. It won’t work for a book: we needed a running example. However, when we started the search for public databases, we could not find any available with the size big enough to demonstrate optimization techniques. After spending some time on the search, we realized that we need to create our own.
That took a while and materialized as a separate project. We really liked the result and thought that it would be a great contribution to the community.
With this, please meet
