Real world databases finally got a visual exploration tool!

30 minutes Database solution Diagrams Open source

We all had the same story, at least once: we wanted to find a visual tool to help us explore our database but only found ERD, and they felt short. Too much tables, columns and relation. The diagram is messy.
I had that also, several times, but this one I didn't quit and finally built the tool I needed to explore the huge Doctolib database (> 500 tables).

In this talk we will discuss the challenges exploring and understanding a database, what are the common options and how I started and built Azimutt as a side project.
