Thanks for the vote of confidence! One thing: We're not marketing it in the OLAP space. Our existing users very much are building new applications.

Initially we went for the metaphor of "what if you could keep complex SQL queries (e.g. 6-way joins and complex aggregations, the kinds of queries that today are essentially impossible outside a data warehouse) incrementally updated in your application within milliseconds? What would you build?

We're moving away from that metaphor because it seems it's more confusing than helpfuL. Tips always appreciated!




Ah, thanks for the correction. In any case I'm looking forward to trying it out eventually--got a number of other things ahead in the queue though.

My suggestion would be consider comparing it to firebase queries. Firebase devs are already familiar with how incrementally updated queries can simplify application development a lot. But, despite Firebase's best marketing attempts, the queries are very restrictive compared to sql or datalog.
