Pushing the Edge of Databases


JavaScript on the server was a surprise to many, but has become a huge success. We’re pushing the limits further and putting it in the database itself. This seemingly crazy idea has some amazing implications and will change the face of the web.

  • Realtime sync with native web technologies like WebSocket and WebRTC.
  • Graph data structures similar to regular old JavaScript objects.
  • Decentralized architecture that uses the browser as a fault tolerant replica set.
  • Offline-first so things work even when your users are disconnected.

Come learn how we implemented these concepts in an open-source JavaScript database.
