Richard Hipp is the original author of SQLite, and is as surprised as anyone else at how popular SQLite has become. These days, Richard leads a small band of intrepid hackers working furiously to maintain SQLite to the highest standards of the art. He also works on other open-source projects such as the Fossil version control system.

SQLite is the SQL database engine that runs the world. It is a critical component in all your devices. There are more instances of SQLite running today than all other database engines combined.
