Aquameta: A P2P Network for Relational Data using PostgreSQL and Git

05/02/2014 - Eric Hanson

"Aquameta is a web-based programming environment built inside PostgreSQL. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate a new way to manage relational data using version control system techniques typically used for files. We’ll show how to mount a PostgreSQL database as a filesystem, push and pull data from remote repositories using SELECT and INSERT, and trade data with others. Then we’ll talk about the future of this technology and our plans to launch a collaborative programming environment.
