Compiler Developer @EdgeDB & PRQL Maintainer
Aljaž is a compiler developer at EdgeDB and a core contributor of the PRQL project, with a background of mathematics and data science. He is working on making data languages more predictable, easier to reason about and improve the developer experience.
Most databases use SQL as the interface to access relational data. Because of that, we associate SQL to be the language of relational algebra. But its affinity with the English language and unclear and inconsistent semantics leave a lot of space for improvements.
