Hi! We're CockroachDB and we're stoked to be at CodeLand!

Hi, CodeLand! We're the team behind CockroachDB, and we are so excited to be here!

Did you know that all apps need databases? Take a look at your phone and see what apps you have… TikTok? DoorDash? SquareCash? Lyft? They all use databases!

Databases make up the software layer that power our apps... And most databases use SQL for writing and querying data. So once you master coding, you’re going to want to start to consider the tools you need to create your app, including the database.

We'd love to answer any SQL or app development questions you might have.

Raffle: Help us give money to charity β€” and enter to win an iPad Air

Enter our iPad Air raffle, and we'll donate $2 to the charity of your choosing (learn more about why we donate money to charity rather than giving out swag here).

🍲 Speed Run: Can you spin up a database faster than you can cook instant ramen?

Sure, a bowl of instant ramen noodles is one of the easiest things to cook, maybe ever, but how "instant" is it, really?

Charlie set out to race his bowl of ramen β€” could it cook faster than he could spin up a database?

🌟 RPG anyone?

Eager to build new apps AND pretend you're a 🌟 grand wizard 🌟? Dust off your traveller's cloak and head to Aittador to save the planet from an evil star sorcerer β€” all while building a TypeORM app.

Cockroach Labs is hiring β€” interns & full-time!

We're hiring across all departments β€” engineers, product managers, customer success, marketing, HR β€” and across experience levels. If you want to join the team, take a look at open roles here and feel free to ask us questions on Slack. We have offices in Toronto, San Francisco, New York City, and many fully remote opportunities.

I am so excited to see that Cockroach Lab's raffle donates to such important causes. I have read about Black Girls Code before and am thrilled to select them. Thanks for sponsoring! I am currently in the job search and look forward to putting my hat in for some of your developer positions.

Hey Cockroach team, thanks for coming to Codeland and setting up a virtual booth! I've heard your ads on Codenewbie podcast episodes, so I wanted to come drop by to say hello.

I've been teaching myself to code to make a career change to software development. I'm currently learning JavaScript on The Odin Project. I find the whole software development field super fascinating and have enjoyed the learning process. I'll be sure to give Cockroach University a look this week!

If available, I'd love to have an informational interview to learn more about Cockroach Labs and what makes a successful developer there.
