"When I first learned about SurrealDB, it looked like an excellent open-source database that did many things in one database. I wanted it to be real! I sent a pull request to add support for it, followed by an unsolicited design proposal to implement a scalable 'change feeds' feature on top of it. A few months later, I became a full-time SurrealDB employee. Today, I'm one of the SurrealDB maintainers because I want to build a database of my dreams with you."

Yusuke Kuoka, Senior Software Engineer at SurrealDB
