Happy Birthday, PostgreSQL!

Posted on July 8, 2008

As of today, the Elephant is offically 12 years old.

On July 8, 1996, Marc Fournier set up the first public CVS server of the ten-year-old POSTGRES code. A small group of volunteer hackers started improving it, soon releasing a steady stream of improvements.

Today, PostgreSQL is one of the most popular SQL/relational databases in the world and respected throughout the industry for maturity, clean code, and unique advanced features.

So, happy birthday, PostgreSQL!
