Every time I read an article about "10 Reasons You Should Start a Blog", there is always something about "learning new skills", and it sounds obvious but it's true. Lately, I'm always thinking about things to write about which makes me search more ... until I find something that gets my attention.
One of the things I discovered while searching for new articles for DBplatz is CockroachDB. (After all ... this is a database related blog).
So I read the documentation and actually you can actually follow these steps on their website but this is one page - one node basic guide.
# Welcome to the CockroachDB SQL shell.
# All statements must be terminated by a semicolon.
# To exit, type: \q.
# Server version: CockroachDB CCL v19.2.5 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, built 2020/03/16 18:27:12, go1.12.12) (same version as client)
# Cluster ID: 49504dc9-1fea-4728-85e5-7825b24d657c
# Enter \? for a brief introduction.
According to the webinar it is really easy to add new nodes to the cluster so in the next post we will try that and more.
