Interview highlights – key sections from the video version:

    We opened sourced right from day one. And we started building a community from day one, but we were a little bit contrary, and we started monetizing pretty early as well because we wanted to get both signals of feedback, both from the open-source community as well as from paying customers. We also knew that if you looked at the database companies, any database company at scale, 80% of their revenue is from the global 2000. And so we knew that selling into the enterprise is not an afterthought. We need to train that muscle right away. ❜
