This session takes you to the journey of building TiDB, an open source NewSQL database inspired by Google F1 and Spanner. In the battlefield of database solutions, whenever it comes to horizontal scaling and ACID transactions, the infrastructure experts have to compromise and trade off against their own will. TiDB aims to help them kill two birds with one stone. This talk will introduce how we are making it happen by covering the features, the architecture, the key technologies, as well as the stories behind the development and design decisions.
